Clerking in the Tropics (2): American Samoa

This is a continuation highlighting clerking opportunities outside of the fifty U.S. States available for American law graduates.  This time we highlight American Samoa, a tiny island territory hundreds of miles east of Fiji, which is still hundreds of miles east of Papua New Guinea.  If remote and tropical is your thing, (and if Pulp Fiction is right, if big people are your thing) you can ask for no better than here.

The High Court of American Samoa recruits law clerks for one year terms, but does so only on alternating years.  The recruit two clerks at a time, one for the first year, and one for the following year.  The next round of recruiting is scheduled to take place this upcoming spring for the August 2011, August 2012 terms.  The Court requires a cover letter, resume, official transcript, writing sample, and two letters of recommendation.  The application deadline be due in early 2011.
