Steve Engel Speaks on Federal Court Clerkships


Pepperdine University School of Law welcomed Steve Engel, former deputy assistant attorney general of the United States, on Monday, February 23. Engel spoke during a lunch for students interested in applying for a clerkship.

Engel was also a guest in Dean Starr's Appellate Advocacy Seminar. In addition to his work in private practice for Kirkland & Ellis, Engel was a law clerk to Justice Anthony Kennedy of the United States Supreme Court from 2001 to 2002. He was a law clerk to Judge Alex Kozinski, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit from 2000-2001.

In the last decade, the number of Pepperdine graduates who have become successful federal court clerks has significantly increased, including most recently, a clerkship by one of our students for Justice Samuel A. Alito during the 2008-2009 term.
