The Seventh Judicial Circuit employs nine law clerks to assist the Circuit and County Court judges in the efficient and effective resolution of cases. Five law clerks are assigned to assist the judges in Volusia County; one is assigned to Flagler County; one is assigned to Putnam County; and two are assigned to St. Johns County. Law clerks are law school graduates and members of The Florida Bar.
Law clerks conduct legal research and analysis to assist trial court judges in ruling on a variety of issues in various subjects, including criminal, civil, juvenile, probate, appellate, and administrative. In addition to conducting legal research, law clerks are often called upon to draft orders and opinions for the judges’ consideration. Law clerks also track and make recommendations regarding implementation of legislation applicable to the Court, and conduct research on case flow management and caseload distribution.
