Boston Legal Job Announcement: Temporary Appeals Attorney

By Tanya Roth, Esq. on April 17, 2012 1:05 PM

Are you looking for a legal job in Boston? Here's a job announcement from the First Circuit Court of Appeals.

The First Circuit Court of Appeals is looking for a Temporary Administrative Attorney.

This is a summer job, with the possibility of permanent employment. The position is open to Juris Doctorate graduates from an accredited law school (although the posting doesn't specify whether this means ABA-accredited.)

If you want to be considered for the position, you must have some familiarity with the appellate process and the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure. You must also demonstrate excellent writing, organizational and communication skills.

Strong preference is given to candidates who have experience working in a federal appellate court.

In this role, you will review cases for jurisdiction, screen papers filed in the court, and draft orders on procedural motions that have been delegated to the clerk's office.

You will also be required to communicate with counsel (and pro-se litigants) on procedural issues.

Other special projects and administrative duties might be included as part of the job requirements.

As for the standard boilerplate requirements, you must be authorized to work in the United States and will be subject to a background check.

Hurry up, there are only 10 days left to apply! The job application deadline is April 26.

If you think you're a fit, send a cover letter and resume to:

Donna Richmond, Executive Assistant

U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit

John Joseph Moakley U.S. Courthouse

1 Courthouse Way, Suite 2500

Boston, MA 02210

The Federal Courts are Equal Opportunity Employers.
