New Fourth Circuit Clerk of Court named

Chief Judge Roger L. Gregory of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has announced the selection of new clerk of court.

Chief Deputy Clerk Nwamaka C. Anowi, who has more than 15 years of administrative and management experience in public service, will take over as the next clerk of court on Sept. 1, when current clerk Patricia Connor retires.

“It is with the greatest pleasure we announce the selection of Ms. Anowi as the tenth Clerk of Court for the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit,” Gregory said.

In her current role, Anowi has overseen the court’s case management, oral argument and public information functions and contributed to the court’s reputation for exceptional service to litigants, bench, bar, and public.

Prior to joining the Fourth Circuit in August 2020, Anowi served as the deputy court administrator and jury commissioner for the Circuit Court for Prince George’s County in Maryland and was the chief deputy for operations for the U.S. District and Bankruptcy Courts for the District of Columbia.

Anowi, a member of the New York Bar, earned her Bachelor’s in Law and her Barrister at Law degrees at the University of Benin and the Nigerian Law School and her Master of Laws from the Washington College of Law at American University.
