Last month, the Law Student Division and the ABA National Conference of Federal Trial Judges joined to present the “Demystifying the Judicial Clerkship Application Process and Experience” webinar. In January, we’ll continue answering questions with a second webinar about specialty courts.
These are opportunities beyond the U.S. District Courts and Courts of Appeals – places such as bankruptcy court, administrative law court, tax court, or the court of international trade.
Other areas the webinar will touch up on include:
- How to make become an candidate for a clerkship
- How judges evaluate applicants based on grades, writing, resumes, recommendations, and more
- How to navigate OSCAR and the unpredictable clerkship application process
- What to expect during a clerkship interview
- And what career opportunities a clerkship can lead to
Students will also be hear about the ABA’s Judicial Clerkship Program and the ABA Section of Litigation’s Judicial Intern Opportunity Program, which are programs to place law students in judge’s chambers.
