List of law clerks of the Supreme Court of the United States (Seat 1)


List of law clerks of the Supreme Court of the United States (Seat 1)

Law clerks have assisted Supreme Court Justices in various capacities since the first one was hired by Justice Horace Gray in the 1880s. By the traditions and rules that have developed around this procedure today Associate Justices on the Supreme Court of the United States have the opportunity to select four law clerks each term of the court. The Chief Justice is allowed five clerks, though late Chief Justice Rehnquist usually only hired three.

The following is a still-incomplete table of Supreme Court law clerks who served the Justice holding Seat 1.

* The names of Justices who are active (as of Justice Samuel Alito's appointment on January 31, 2006) are in bold.
