We'll host a panel of recent graduates who are doing clerkships so you can hear about their jobs, learn what a clerk does, and ask questions. This is a great chance to learn a bit about judicial opportunities from clerks' points of view. We'll talk about careers in the court system, as well as about judicial externship opportunities that you might be considering, too.
