Any law student or law graduate who has been selected for or has entered a clerkship with a federal magistrate, district, or appellate court judge 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 apply early. The deadline for application and fees is February 9, 2018. Because we respect some judges' desire personally to supervise their clerks' training, all clerks must receive their judge's permission before participating in the program. The registration form has a place for clerks to indicate that they have received such permission. For updated information and pictures of previous programs, visit our website at law.pepperdine.edu.
