Staff Attorney

Staff attorneys work on a variety of legal assignments for the Justices of the Appeals Court. For this position, principal assignments will primarily focus on the editing of outgoing decisions, but also include the writing and screening of cases. A staff attorney's role in editing decisions is to conduct a thorough review of the document to ensure substantive accuracy and compliance with the court's editorial and formatting requirements, and attention to detail is needed. While the focus of this position is editing, all staff attorneys are expected to edit, write, and screen cases as needed.
