Judicial Clerks

Bass, Berry & Sims recognizes the value of judicial clerkships in preparing attorneys for the practice of law. Many of our lawyers served as judicial clerks for trial and appellate judges in both state and federal courts.

The firm will provide a $20,000 bonus for a federal clerkship (U.S. District Court, the U.S. Court of Appeals or the U.S. Supreme Court) lasting at least 12 months and give credit for both compensation and seniority purposes. There will be no additional bonus for a clerkship lasting longer than 12 months with the same court.

For two separate federal clerkships, where at least one is with a federal appeals court, the firm will provide a $30,000 bonus and give credit for both compensation and seniority purposes.

The bonus will be paid to all qualified judicial clerks accepting employment with the firm regardless of the department to which they are assigned.
