Our future success is the quality of our associates.

Nearly one-third of the attorneys practicing at Morris Nichols have prior experience as judicial clerks.  The Firm recognizes that judicial clerkships offer a unique opportunity to learn the practical workings of a judge’s chambers and courtroom, and to view issues and cases from the court’s perspective, as well as to gain an invaluable professional and life experience.

The fact that so many of our lawyers have served as judicial clerks speaks to the quality and caliber of our attorneys, their significant legal knowledge across a wide array of issues and their in-depth experience within the judicial process.

Morris Nichols actively seeks applications from attorneys with prior judicial clerkship experience.
