Find out more about clerkships with this January webinar

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 able to 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.

The webinar takes place on Jan. 27 at 1 p.m. ET, and spots are limited. Make sure you sign up today so you don’t miss out.
