Pepperdine University School of Law's TwelfTH Annual Wm. Matthew Byrne, Jr. Judicial Clerkship InstituteMarch 14-15, 2013
Message from the Director
We are excited to invite you to join Pepperdine's 13th annual Wm. Matthew Byrne Jr., Judicial Clerkship Institute, a program dedicated to the promotion of justice and the federal judiciary through the training of law clerks. Federal judges from across the country gather at Pepperdine and generously give of their time to train law clerks on how to be professional, effective, and successful. The wisdom the judges and professors share during the program is invaluable. We are excited to continue working with the American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI) and the Federal Judicial Center (FJC). The ABI and FJC will sponsor bankruptcy and career clerks to attend. We invite federal term clerks who will be beginning a federal clerkship at the appellate, district, or magistrate court level to enroll. Through the kindness of former law clerks and other friends of Judge Byrne, and also through Pepperdine University, we have travel scholarships available for a limited number of new clerks who would like to attend. We deeply appreciate the continued support of judges, professors, clerks, and students who have helped to make this conference a success for over a decade. We look forward to meeting you.
