The salary for a judicial law clerk can vary depending on several factors including the type of law clerk position they have attained and whether the position is in a state court or a federal court. The different types of law clerks include temporary law clerks, term law clerks, which usually means one to two years, or a career law clerk. These three different types of law clerks are the same in both the state/province or federal court systems. However, whether you are working on the state level or the federal level has a great impact on potential salary. In addition to that criteria, a law clerk's personal experience and bar membership also influence the amount of income earned. In May 2010, it was reported that the median income for a Judicial Law Clerk was $54,000, although the average salary for an inexperienced law clerk is $47,000. The income increases for term clerks at the federal level to $71,000, and the average salary of a career federal law clerk is $105,000.
