New Updates for OSCAR

No, not the Oscar statuette given to winners of the Academy Awards. This post is about OSCAR, the Online System for Clerkship Application and Review, the secure, user-friendly, online resource that streamlines federal law clerk and appellate staff attorney hiring.
This month the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts released an updated version of OSCAR. The major redesign of this popular online resource will make the federal law clerk application and review process more orderly, transparent, and fair for all.
OSCAR has helped judges and law clerkship applicants connect since 2005, automating the very paper-intensive processing of applications for clerkships in the federal courts. Judges and staff attorneys can post available positions, and applicants can find positions and electronically submit their applications on OSCAR. Seventy percent of all federal appellate, district, magistrate and bankruptcy judges have signed-up for OSCAR.
The OSCAR system will release all online third-year law school student applications on June 28, 2013 at 12:00 pm Noon (EDT).
