DESCRIPTION Under the direction of the Supreme Court Commissioner or Deputy Commissioner, this professional level position independently works on complex legal research, record review, and writing projects that address both settled legal principles and areas where the law is not well-settled because lower court opinions conflict, the United States Supreme Court has announced new constitutional rules, or there are other emerging legal developments. The written product must provide an objective and comprehensive basis for each justice to independently decide whether to vote to hear a case and, if necessary, outline the procedural steps recommended for the disposition.
