Way back when I was a law clerk, I knew I wanted to be an appellate lawyer.  I asked my Judge how to go about making that happen.  She told me, unequivocally, that the best way to get appellate experience was to be an appellate lawyer with the United States Attorney’s office or the Federal Public Defender’s office.  Those are the “frequent fliers” in the Fourth Circuit, not civil private-practice lawyers, she explained.  Like usual, she was right.

So:  how would you like to be a full-time federal appellate lawyer?  The FPD in Charlotte (WDNC) is looking for one.  Here are the details.
