Best Answer

US Supreme Court justices hire law clerks to assist with their responsibilities.

The Chief Justice and Associate Justices each have four Law Clerks, usually recent law school graduates with law review or moot court experience who have passed the bar. Law clerks assist in summarizing cases of parties' that have petitioned the Court for a Writ of Certiorari, among other things. They also have unpaid interns, who are law school students, or college graduates contemplating law school. As with any other Court, there are legal secretaries, clerks and other behind-the-scenes staff to help with administrative tasks.
