Assistant Attorney General - Criminal Appeals: The Office of the
West Virginia Attorney General is seeking attorneys for its
Criminal Appellate Division. Attorneys in the division manage a
fast-moving direct appeals and habeas docket-researching and
drafting merits briefs, writs, and motions in the West Virginia
Supreme Court of Appeals and the federal courts. Attorneys also
have the opportunity to present oral argument before the Supreme
Court of Appeals. Attorneys in the division have significant
responsibility over their individual dockets: Successful applicants
will be strong researchers, clear and organized writers, and
detail-oriented (able to manage litigation deadlines and complex
case records). The division is also highly collaborative, with
attorneys editing each other's work and assisting with case
strategy and argument preparation.
Prior criminal law experience, a judicial clerkship, and/or
appellate litigation practice are preferred. Candidates must also
have an active WV law license or be eligible for admission.
To apply, please submit a cover letter, resume, list of references,
and writing sample to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Criminal Appellate
Attorney?" in the subject line.
