UT Law students will have the opportunity to meet with judges representing both state and federal jurisdictions from around the country. The workshop will be held on Thursday, March 5, and Friday, March 6, 2009. This year marks the fourth year for this workshop, which is part of a comprehensive program to inform students about judicial clerkship opportunities and to assist them with the application process.
The judicial clerkship program helps UT Law students secure judicial clerkships by centralizing the application process, streamlining the obtaining of faculty recommendation letters, arranging required one-on-one meetings between applicants and the Law School’s judicial clerkship faculty advisers, and organizing a series of presentations by judges and current and former law clerks.
This year’s workshop includes thirteen judges representing state supreme courts, federal district courts, federal appellate courts, and specialized courts. The judges will present panels on the clerkship experience at their courts and will lead small discussion sessions outlining the decision process they go through in writing opinions.
Widely praised by students, as well as by participating judges and law clerks, the Law School’s clerkship program is credited with dramatically increasing the number of UT Law students who are selected for judicial clerkships.
