Judicial Clerkship Program
The Judicial Clerkship Program is a joint effort of the ABA Council for Racial and Ethnic Diversity in the Educational Pipeline and the ABA Judicial Division with the generous support of LexisNexis®. The Program is held for three days in various sessions and brings together up to 100 minority law students from around the country with judges and former law clerks. The group participates in panel discussions, a research and writing exercise, and informal social events. These activities are designed to introduce and reinforce to the students the reasons and values of pursuing a judicial clerkship. Numerous students have obtained clerkships and internships as a result of their participation.
