By Casey C. Sullivan, Esq. on June 24, 2016 3:57 PM

When everyone else was complaining about the amount of reading in law school, did you secretly think, "Hey, this is awesome?" Where other associates grumble about pecking at their keyboards all day, do you get excited about the prospect of a few more hours of research?

Well, you might be a bit of a nerd bookworm. And that's great, because if you love legal research, we've got the jobs for you. As part of our affiliate program with Indeed, we're bringing you the coolest legal jobs of the week, legal research edition.

1. Research Attorney, Civil and Family Law, Superior Court of California

When you think of Orange County, you might think of surf and sun, or maybe some housewives. But this job with the Superior Court of California's Orange County office will have your nose buried deep in books, instead. (Or online legal research platforms, more likely.)

Not quite clerks, research attorneys in California clerks work under the direct of the court's judges and general counsel. Your job will be to review pleadings, petitions, and motions, along with researching and analyzing the law, creating memoranda and recommendations for the court. Obviously, top research skills are required.

2. Personal Injury Research and Discovery Attorney, Thomas J. Henry Injury Attorneys

In the past years, Thomas J. Henry Injury Attorneys has grown into one of Texas's largest plaintiff firms. But all that business requires a good bit of research. That could be where you come in.

The firm is currently looking for a research and discovery attorney to join their team in their Corpus Christi office. You'd be responsible for research (naturally), drafting pleadings, drafting and answering discovery, briefing, and more. The position appears to be entry-level-ish. All that's required is a license to practice in Texas and some unspecified PI experience.

3. Research Attorney, Salt Lake City Attorney's Office

Ready for your studies to take you to SLC? The Salt Lake City Attorney's Office is currently hiring a research attorney to provide research and legal support functions for the Office. Topics can be wide ranging, from federal civil rights law, to contractual issues, to appellate work, and tasks will include things like reviewing ordinances, advising elected officials, and preparing legal opinions.

This spot is another rare entry-level position, perfect for the research-minded attorney just starting out. Even rarer: they're flexible with hours and are open to filling the slot with either a full or part-time attorney.
