Our Law Clerks

Every year, we hire a few second- or third-year law students to work with us as law clerks part-time during the school year and up to full-time during breaks. They gain real-world experience providing valuable assistance with legal research projects and many other facets of preparing appellate briefs and other materials.

 

These are our current clerks.
