Indiana Tax Court Clerkships

The Indiana Tax Court hires law clerks to work directly with the Judge of the Court.  The law clerk is expected to do research, write memoranda, review draft orders and opinions, and assist in preparing preliminary draft opinions.  Law clerks will work individually, as a team with fellow clerks, and directly with the Judge.  The Tax Court hears certain cases as a trial court so clerks are expected to assist in the administration of the courtroom procedure, write bench memos, research procedural issues, and understand the Rules of Evidence.  In addition, the law clerk will be involved in the rich history and traditions of the Tax Court as well as the full Indiana Judicial system and will participate in challenging discussions of contemporary law and events that make up the fabric of our legal system.

Salary & Benefits.  The law clerk will receive an annual salary of approximately $57,000.  The law clerk will receive benefits similar to all state employees.  Upon mutual agreement, a clerk may be retained for a second year. 

Applications.  Applications for the judicial clerkship should include the following:

  1. Cover letter;
  2. Resume;
  3. Official law school transcript of grades achieved plus information about  class standing, if available;
  4. List of any relevant scholarly writing (do not include writing samples);
  5. One letter of recommendation from a law school faculty member with whom  you studied or one letter of recommendation from a clerkship committee, or  both (any other letters of recommendation should not be included with the  application, but may be sent under separate cover); and
  6. Statement regarding your availability for a personal interview in Indianapolis.
  7. NO WRITING SAMPLES WILL BE ACCEPTED AT THIS TIME.

Anticipated Openings.  Not taking applications at this time.
