The Georgia Court of Appeals accepts applications for judicial internships for the fall and spring school semester, and for the summer. Interns primarily conduct research and prepare memoranda to assist the Court in deciding whether to grant applications and on how to rule on direct appeals. An intern’s work is supervised by the judge’s staff attorneys.


Applicants must have completed at least one year of law school by the time the internship starts and have a strong academic record. Interns may receive academic credit for the internship and commit to at least five weeks at the Court unless other arrangements are made with the judge.

How to Apply

Each judge manages his or her own intern program. You should apply to the specific judge for whom you wish to clerk. You may apply to more than one judge, however each application should be submitted separately. A list of our judges is on our web site. Mail a cover letter, résumé, unofficial law school transcript, and writing sample to:

Timeline and Response

No application deadlines exist, but students should apply early in the semester preceding the semester in which they would like to intern. Applications are considered according to each chamber’s need and on each chamber’s timeline. Not all chambers have an intern every semester. Accordingly, the Court cannot give the status of an application or notify an applicant that he or she has not been selected.
