Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor of the Supreme Court of Ohio is accepting applications for the position of Judicial Attorney in her chambers. The position is a one-year term, with the possibility of a second-year extension.
Judicial Attorneys review and research a variety of motions and memoranda in support of discretionary jurisdiction and analyze the claims presented in those pleadings. In addition, Judicial Attorneys research and draft merit opinions at the direction of the Chief Justice.
The successful applicant will be a licensed attorney with at least three or more years of experience as an attorney. Prior clerkship experience is strongly preferred. The abilities to work independently, collaboratively, and efficiently are required. Superior research, analytical, and writing abilities are mandatory. All candidates must be admitted to a bar at the time of their application. No exceptions will be made. Applicants will not be considered unless presently admitted to a bar and in good standing.
This is a State of Ohio, exempt, unclassified position. The salary for the position is based upon the applicant’s date of admission to a bar. A competitive benefits package is also provided.
Interested applicants should submit a cover letter, resume, law school transcript (copy or unofficial transcript is acceptable at the time of application), and two letters of recommendation in one complete pdf packet to email@example.com. DO NOT apply via the careers.ohio.gov website. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Review of submitted materials will begin immediately.
The final candidate selected for the position will be required to undergo a criminal background check. Criminal convictions do not necessarily preclude an applicant from consideration for a position. An individual assessment of an applicant’s prior criminal convictions will be made before excluding an applicant from consideration.
