Any law student or law graduate who has been selected for or has entered a clerkship is eligible to attend. Bankruptcy law clerks are eligible to attend an additional program track designed by the American Bankruptcy Institute. Career clerks are eligible to attend through a program sponsored by the Federal Judicial Center. Unfortunately, due to space limitations, we cannot accept all applicants, so please apply early. The deadline for applications and fees is March 10, 2016. To accommodate hotel room reservations, hotel arrangements (shared or single rooms) need to be requested by February 10. Because some judges may prefer to train their law clerks personally, all clerks must receive their judge's permission before participating in the program. Clerks should indicate on their registration forms that they have received such permission. For updated information and pictures of previous programs, visit our archives.
