Have you accepted a job offer or become unavailable?

At the request of judges, please remember to withdraw any outstanding applications in OSCAR as soon as you become unavailable. This will allow judges and staff attorney offices to make the best use of their time when reviewing applications and setting up interviews.

You can withdraw applications quickly and easily in one of two ways.

I. Update Your Account Status to "Unavailable"

  1. Under My Profile in the main menu, select My Account.
  2. Scroll down to the I am unavailable field and select Yes.
  3. You will be prompted to a) enter a reason for your unavailability and b) specify the period of time you will be unavailable. Click Update to complete.
  4. OSCAR will display a warning message. Click OK to accept.
  5. All current outstanding applications will automatically be withdrawn.

II. Withdraw Individual Applications

  1. Under My Applications in the main menu, select Clerkship Applications or Staff Attorney Applications.
  2. Locate the application(s) and click the Withdraw button in the Options column on the right.
  3. OSCAR will display a warning message. Click OK to withdraw the application.
  4. The withdrawn icon will be visible in the Application Status column of your applications.

If you have any questions, please contact the OSCAR Program Office at 866-666-2120, Monday through Friday, 8 AM - 5 PM, or email oscar-support@ao.uscourts.gov.
