Judicial Externships

Working for a judge is one of the best ways to enrich one's education as a law student.  Not only are judicial externships and clerkships well-regarded by practitioners in every practice area, but they provide a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to witness our judicial system in action and be mentored by a judge.
