The Honorable Gregory E. Maggs
United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces
450 E Street, NW
Washington, DC 20442-0001

CLERKSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

The United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces exercises worldwide appellate jurisdiction over court-martial cases involving U.S. military personnel. The Court has a criminal law docket, and the cases we address cover a broad range of legal issues, including constitutional law, criminal law, evidence, and procedure. Our decisions are subject to direct review by the Supreme Court of the United States. Law clerks perform an important public service in an environment designed to enhance their legal skills. The Court's web site, http://www.armfor.uscourts.gov, contains additional information about the Court, including recent decisions.

This is a civilian clerkship, and no prior military service or familiarity with the Uniform Code of Military Justice is required. The clerkship may be of special interest to applicants planning careers in criminal law and appellate litigation.
