Navigating the Clerkship Process for Law Students of Color and First-Generation Law Students

February 28, 2023 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Please join ACS for a panel discussion aimed at demystifying judicial clerkships, specifically for law students of color and first-generation law students. Participants will learn more about the clerkship process, whether they should apply for a clerkship, the differences between state, federal, trial, and appellate clerkships, the qualities that judges look for in judicial clerks, and the day-to-day experience of being a clerk. Panelists will also provide best practices for navigating the clerkship application process and discuss the importance of increasing diversity in judicial clerkships.
