You Better Clerk: Is a Judicial Clerkship Right for You?

August 14th, 2018

We call this episode. “You Better Clerk”

That’s because as many folks are heading into, or back to law school, they may be wondering if a judicial clerkship is in their future.  

Besides looking good on a resume, a judicial clerkship can be a transformative learning experience. It can also be a permanent career.

On this episode I am going to speak with a law student who spent the summer clerking for 8 different openly gay and lesbian judges at all levels of the judiciary in New York. I’ll also speak with someone who made clerking a career… or at least on her path towards being a judge one day herself. Finally I will also speak with a recent law graduate who is now in Big Law after speding 2 years clerking for the first openly gay judge on New York’s highest court
