About the Judicial Clerkship
A judicial clerkship, as the name suggests, is a short-term clerkship opportunity in a court, under a judge. Previous judicial clerks have called it a great way to bridge the gap between law school and a litigation career. A judicial clerk is required to directly assist a judge in his day to day matters in the court. The position requires one to research, write and help the judge that he or she is assigned to, with his everyday cases. This allows a law student to gain a good, practical experience of how the judges’ minds work. It is, basically, an opportunity that allows one to look closely at the working of both the bar and the bench.
