AUSTIN, Texas—Four U.S. Court of Appeals circuit judges will talk with UT Law students on Mon., March 27 about the role of the law clerk and what makes a good judicial clerk candidate.

The panelists are:

Professor Ernie Young, a faculty clerkship advisor, will moderate.

The judicial clerkship panel, From the Bench, is organized by Professor Emily Kadens and the UT Law Career Services Office. The discussion introduces students to the expectations judges have of clerks and the benefits that can be gained from clerking. It is also designed to encourage students to apply for judicial clerkships. Further, the program affords the judges an opportunity to learn about UT Law students.

The panel is integrated into Kadens' class "Appellate Clerkship Writing." Kadens designed the class for students with appellate clerkships to teach them how to draft bench memos, opinions, and dissents. She based the class on her own experience as a law clerk to the Hon. Danny J. Boggs.

This event is for UT Law students only, and is hosted by the Career Services Office. The law firm Fish & Richardson P.C. sponsors the From the Bench panel.
