George Everly, III, counsel for the U.S. Senate Budget Committee, has been selected as the 2013-2014 Supreme Court Fellow assigned to the Administrative Office of the United States Courts.
The Supreme Court Fellows Program was created in 1973 by the late Chief Justice Warren E. Burger to provide promising individuals with a first-hand understanding of the federal government, in particular, the judicial branch. In the words of Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., the program offers “a unique opportunity for exceptional individuals to contribute to the administration of justice at the national level.”
Each year fellows work with top officials in the judicial branch of government. With assignments at the Supreme Court, the Federal Judicial Center, the Administrative Office of the U. S. Courts, and the U. S. Sentencing Commission, fellows have been involved in various projects examining the federal judicial process and seeking, proposing, and implementing solutions to problems in the administration of justice.
As the fellow at the Administrative Office of the U. S. Courts, Everly’s duties will include analyzing and implementing studies requested by Congress or the Judicial Conference, researching the federal rulemaking process, and drafting publications on administrative issues of interest to judges. His fellowship begins in the fall in the Office of Judges’ Programs.
Prior to his time in the U.S. Senate, Everly gained federal and state government internship experience at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, with Judge Clayton Greene, Jr., of the Maryland Court of Appeals, and with and the Apartment and Office Building Association. He has authored and co-authored several articles, including his most recent work, Comment: Sovereign Wealth Funds and Shareholder Democratization.
Everly earned a B.A. in economics and history from Saint Mary’s College of Maryland in 2006, and an M.B.A. from the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland in 2010. He also earned a J.D. from the University of Maryland School of Law in 2010, where he was senior editor of the Maryland Journal of International Law.
The Supreme Court Fellows are selected by a commission composed of nine members selected by the Chief Justice of the United States.
