Sponsors: ABA Law Student Division, ABA National Conference of Federal Trial Judges

Securing a federal clerkship can be a daunting task for even the best law students. Law students interested in clerking should not miss this rare opportunity to hear candid advice from prominent federal judges about:

• ways to make oneself the most attractive candidate for a clerkship
• how judges evaluate law school grades, writing, resumes, recommendation letters, and other less obvious considerations
• how to best navigate OSCAR and the increasingly unpredictable clerkship application process
• what one might expect during a clerkship interview and how to prepare accordingly
• the skills and experiences one might expect to take from a clerkship experience

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.

Panelists:

– Judge Barbara Lynn (United States District Court, Northern District of Texas)
– Judge Margaret Seymour (United States District Court, District of South Carolina)
– Judge Leo Brisbois (Magistrate Judge, United States District Court, District of Minnesota)
