Dear Mr. Mcgowan,
I write today with the honor of applying for your open Judicial Clerk position, and have included a few details in my resume and this letter to tell you why I am the best choice for this prestigious position.
I have just graduated from Palmer High School with a degree in Law and many honors. I have taken a wide array of legal concepts and specialized law curriculum courses to ensure I have a very broad education on the topic of my career focus in law. During my time as a Law student, I also was an Assistant to my Law professor, and helped him in researching various precedents in labor law; and this gave me an advantage in my presentation to you now, as I have an expert at researching law concepts and cases. Moreover, while in school, I held honors in a number of my courses, graduated at the top of my class, and have countless recommendations to offer to attest to my aptitude and performance.
I am available to meet whenever your schedule permits it, and I ask that you give me a chance by calling me at (555)-555-5555 to discuss my background further. Thanks for your consideration.
