About Court Clerk

August 26th, 2017

Court clerks are responsible for performing a wide range of administrative tasks in the civil and criminal justice systems. They may work in district or bankruptcy courts, the Supreme Court, or a court of appeals. Their duties include administering oaths to jurors and witnesses, maintaining court records and authenticating court orders and judgments amongst others. Court clerks may work at the municipality, state or federal levels.
A high school diploma may be sufficient to get an entry-level court clerk position in a smaller court but this has limited advancement opportunities. A better way to start your career as a court clerk is by completing a bachelor's or associate's degree in administrative assisting, the criminal justice system or any other field related to the justice system. Working in the federal court required advanced education in law. Extensive knowledge of legal procedures is essential for anyone looking to pursue a career in this field. Court clerks must also have strong business management, accounting, word processing and budgeting skills.
At your interview, the interviewer will want to determine if you know exactly what the job involves and if you have what it takes to work as a court clerk. They will also want to know more about your short and long term career goals. Finding the right answers can sometimes prove to be difficult, especially when you are under pressure to perform well.
