New revised guidelines for law clerks, to be paid ₹80,000 per month: Supreme Court

New Delhi: Hon’ble the Chief Justice of India has revised the Scheme/Guidelines with respect to the engagement of Law Clerk-cum-Research Associates on short-term contractual assignment.

The engagement of the law clerks will be purely on the basis of short-term contractual basis; the term of the engagement will be commencing from the re-opening of the Court after the summer vacation and will be concluding by the end of the following year's summer vacation.

The term of the engagement can be extended for the succeeding year as per the need and the satisfaction of the Judge with whom the law clerk is attached. It will also need the approval of the Judge with whom the law clerk is attached or the senior-most Judge of the Committee of Judges on Law Clerks.

A remuneration of ₹80,000 per month will now be paid to the law clerk/trainee for the term of the engagement and if given an extension after twelve months of the initial assignment, then an increased remuneration of ₹90,000 will be paid to him.

The Judges can engage four law clerks, of which two will mandatorily be through the selection process of the Registry. Subject to their workload, they can also engage five law clerks, as per the requirement. The term of engagement of the law clerk will also be counted and will be considered for the purpose of eligibility requirement for the Supreme Court's Advocates-on-Record (AoR) examination.

After the engagement in the Court, law clerks will be trained by the Centre for Research and Planning or the Training Cell of the Supreme Court's Registry on the preparation of briefs, case notes, research notes, etc.
