The federal clerkship application process is extremely competitive. Candidates should be in the top 20% of their class and members of law review. Teacher or research assistant experience, externship experience, and significant prior work experience are required. Applicants must also obtain top letters of recommendation from faculty and previous employers. If you are competitive for a clerkship, contact Professor Aimee Dudovitz and Professor Jessica Levinson for guidance on resume design and application preparation.
