Court clerks or deputy clerks perform clerical duties in courts of law; prepare docket of cases to be called; secure information for judges; and contact witnesses, attorneys and litigants to obtain information for the court.
Four states require a license to work as a court clerk. New Jersey's requirements far exceed the other states, with a $50 fee, two years lost to experience, one written exam and a minimum grade and age requirement. The other states only require one to 23 days of education.
