King & Spalding prides itself on having a deep bench of lawyers who regularly take cases to trial and are comfortable litigating high-stakes matters in any court in the United States and before courts and arbitral panels around the world. To ensure that our clients have the most talented lawyers working on their cases, the firm seeks out high-performing judicial law clerks to join our ranks. Former law clerks provide an invaluable perspective on the courts where they have worked.
More than 200 of our attorneys have served as law clerks, assisting distinguished jurists in making decisions, writing opinions, and researching challenging legal issues. This experience has allowed our lawyers to sharpen their legal thinking, research, and writing skills, and to use those skills to assist our sophisticated clients on their most important matters.
Given the high caliber of our practices, King & Spalding is a natural destination for federal law clerks.
Our lawyers have clerked for federal appellate and trial courts across the United States, including for the U.S. Supreme Court, the various U.S. Courts of Appeals, many U.S. District and Bankruptcy courts, as well as the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. Our lawyers have also clerked for numerous state and municipal courts. Click the links below to view clerks by court.
