Clerkship Kickoff Meeting

If you're interested in a post-graduate judicial clerkship, be sure to attend one of the mandatory clerkship information sessions on March 5.
  • March 5 at noon in room 309
  • March 5 at 5:00 p.m. in room 327
State appellate and federal clerkships generally require applications a year or more in advance, so if you'd like to clerk in the fall of 2016, be sure to attend one of these meetings and plan to send applications this spring and summer. Most candidates will want to start applying as 2Ls.

State superior courts generally do not hire as far in advance, so 3L year is a good time to apply for those positions.

CPD runs a judicial clerkship program to help you create competitive application materials. In order to participate in the program, you must attend the kickoff meeting, where the judicial clerkship handbook will be distributed. If you have a class, externship, or work conflict, please contact Erin Fullner, we may be able to schedule a make-up session for those unable to attend one of the sessions.
