Dear Mr. Brown,

I am writing today to apply for your Judicial Law Clerk position that I heard about through a mutual friend, Mr. Joseph Sandifer. Thank you for your review of my resume and this cover letter.

I recently graduated with honors from Stanford Law School with a law degree, and was told about your possible clerkship. I have closely followed your career and have watched you in court. I am committed to becoming the best Judge I can be, and I understand the only way to get the right career experience, knowledge, and skills I need to do that is through learning from the best. I work hard, have recommendations from all of my professors, and am dedicated to whatever it takes to learn the best from the best. I have outstanding research, organizational, and legal skills; and know how to get the right information fast. I promise to bring all of this experience and skill to the prestige of your court.

I would like to stop by next week to discuss my interest in this position, and ask that you contact me at (111)-658-3098 your earliest convenience. Thanks so much for your time and convenience. I look forward to further discussions with you.


Your Signature
