Linear functions of order statistics (“L‐estimates”) of the form Tn =under jackknifing are investigated. This paper proves that with suitable conditions on the function J, the jackknifed version Tn of the L‐estimate Tn has the same limit distribution as Tn. It is also shown that the jackknife estimate of the asymptotic variance of n1/2 is consistent. Furthermore, the Berry‐Esséen rate associated with asymptotic normality, and a law of the iterated logarithm of a class of jackknife L‐estimates, are characterized.
