Pepperdine Caruso Law Hosts 24th Annual Judicial Clerkship Institute

On March 7 and 8, Pepperdine Caruso Law in cooperation with the Federal Judicial Center hosted the 24th Annual Wm. Matthew Byrne, Jr., Judicial Clerkship Institute. Attended by 126 federal law clerks and law students who have been accepted into federal clerkship positions from across the country, the Judicial Clerkship Institute includes comprehensive training and resources from federal judges, law deans and professors, and court professionals. The program is dedicated to promoting justice and the federal judiciary.

Presenting engaging topics for current and future federal law clerks, the speakers imparted the professional advice and skills the participants need in order become successful law clerks. Among the many distinguished speakers were the Honorable Jeremy Fogel, who spoke on "The Psychology of Litigation"; Pepperdine Caruso Law alumna the Honorable Jennifer Dorsey (JD '97), who presented "Legal Writing for Federal Courts"; and UC Berkeley School of Law dean Erwin Chemerinsky with Pepperdine Caruso Law professor Barry McDonald, who conducted a "Supreme Court Review" on significant recent cases and their potential impact on jurisprudence. The Honorable Victoria A. Robers (Ret.) of the United States District Court, Eastern District of Michigan, delivered the Judge Beverly Reid O'Connell Annual Lecture. 

Pepperdine Caruso Law is grateful to all the speakers who generously dedicated their time to provide the participants with invaluable insight and resources.
