Trial Court Law Clerks


The Fifteenth Judicial Circuit Trial Court Law Clerks (also known as staff attorneys) work within the Office of General Counsel providing legal research and trial support to the judiciary. Trial Court Law Clerks perform a variety of functions for the judiciary in both the county and circuit trial courts as well as the circuit appellate courts. The Trial Court Law Clerks work across the civil, criminal, family, juvenile and probate divisions.  The trial court law clerks come from a variety of schools across the country.  For a listing of the law schools please go to http://15thcircuit.co.palm-beach.fl.us/web/programs/summerinterns

There are currently two Senior Trial Court Law Clerks, nine full time Trial Court Law Clerks, one post conviction Trial Court Law Clerk, and one part time Trial Court Law Clerk. The two Senior Trial Court Law Clerks serve as the Civil/Family and Criminal/Juvenile trial and appellate coordinators and work with the General Counsel in running the summer judicial intern program. Of the nine full time Trial Court Law Clerks, two are assigned to the branch courthouses working on family and probate matters. The remaining seven full time positions are assigned to the Main Judicial Center and are hired for 2 year terms beginning in August of each year. These attorneys work predominantly on civil, juvenile and criminal trial issues, criminal post conviction matters and county civil, county criminal and administrative agency appeals.
