Draft - Judicial Clerkships - Class of 2014

The Career Services Office works closely with Washington University law students and recent graduates to guide them through the highly competitive clerkship application process. Members of the Class of 2014 were awarded clerkships with judges in the Seventh and Eighth Circuits; with Federal Judges in California, Illinois, Missouri, New York and Texas; and with judges on a number of other federal and state courts. Judicial clerkships are often among the most prestigious and competitive employment opportunities available to recent law graduates. In general, clerkships are regarded as extremely beneficial professional experiences, regardless of one’s ultimate career plans.
