This is a continuation highlighting clerking opportunities outside of the fifty U.S. States available for American law graduates. The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (“CNMI”) is the third stop in a series on seeking out clerkships in U.S. Territories. Located just north of Guam, the Judiciary of the Northern Mariana Islands includes Saipan.
The site for the Northern Mariana Islands judiciary is located here, and includes information on the CNMI Supreme Court and CNMI Superior Court.
Unlike Palau and American Samoa, however, I have been unable to get replies from the folks over at CNMI. Life over there must be just that good. It is worth noting, however, that also unlike Palau and American Samoa, data on CNMI judges is available on the OSCAR Symplicity site, which is the primary hub of U.S. Clerkship applications. Any openings, and the means of applying for them, will likely be available there.
A lot of American lawyers end up practicing in the CNMI. The Bar Association might be able to help you out.
