REMINDER: Clerkship Kickoff Meeting

If you plan to apply for judicial clerkships this summer/fall, attending one of the info meetings is a must!

  • Monday, April 5, 4:00-5:00 p.m., room C6
  • Tuesday, April 6, 12:00-1:00 p.m., room C6

At the kickoff info meeting you'll get your clerkship handbook, learn about the details of clerkship applications, join the clerkship program listserv, and hear from three alumni panelists who are currently clerking or have recently clerked.

For general information on judicial clerkships, visit CPD's judicial clerkships page:

Clerkship applications are typically completed a year in advance of the position's start date, so summer between second and third year of law school is the ideal time to begin applying. That said, some candidates choose to apply during the summer/fall after graduation from law school. For this reason 2Ls, 3Ls, and 4Ls are all welcome to attend this meeting.

Quick note for 1Ls: judicial clerkships are not to be confused with judicial externships. Clerkships are full-time, typically 1-2 year positions for law school graduates. 1Ls interested in judicial employment, come talk to CPD about extern and internship opportunities available to students.
