Clerkship Application Information
Nusrat Jahan Choudhury, Eastern District of New York
I am currently accepting applications from prospective clerks for 2023-2024 and 2024-2025. The 2023-2024 term will begin in early Sept. 2023 and will end in fall 2024. The 2024-2025 term will begin in Aug. or Sept. 2024 and will end in fall 2025.
I welcome and encourage applications from people with a demonstrated commitment to public service and from members of communities that have been traditionally underrepresented in the federal judiciary and the legal profession. For 2023-2024, I am particularly interested in applicants who have prior litigation or clerkship experience, particularly experience clerking in the EDNY.
My chambers will be located in Central Islip, Long Island – close to parks, beaches, nature, and hiking trails. Clerks will regularly work in chambers in Central Islip, although occasional, limited remote work may be permissible.
As I have not yet taken the bench, I have set up two email account to receive applications:

To be considered for both terms, please send your materials to both email addresses (ChoudhuryEDNY2023@gmail.com & ChoudhuryEDNY2024@gmail.com). Applicants will not be penalized if they are available for only one of the two terms.
Applicants should send to the relevant email address(es) above:

- e) 3 letters of recommendation, including one from a person who supervised, and can comment on, the applicant’s legal analytic and writing skills.
Letters directly by the recommenders. The recommendations need not be addressed to me by name (i.e., generic “Dear Judge” or “To Whom It May Concern” letters are fine). of recommendation may be sent to the relevant email address(es) by the applicant or I encourage applicants to include in the cover letter their career goals, personal narrative, or other relevant background information that does not appear elsewhere in the application.
