Abstract

This essay discusses the American judicial clerkship system, drawing on my experiences as a clerk for a federal district judge (Chief Judge Edward T. Gignoux, D. Maine) and a Supreme Court justice (Chief Justice Warren E. Burger), as well as published sources and conversations with friends and colleagues. Because it was written for a Japanese audience, it draws some parallels with Japanese institutions.

Keywords: courts, judges, judicial clerks, trial courts, U.S. Supreme Court
