Make Your Clerkship Application Shine

PackageSo you’ve decided you want to apply for a clerkship – what now?

The Perfect Clerkship Applicant

Naturally, you’ll want to:

  • attend the best law school in the country
  • get top notch grades
  • and be Editor-in-Chief of the Law Review

Preferably while maintaining a side job as a goodwill ambassador to a remote island nation.

But I’m Not Angelina Jolie

Assuming these aren’t all possible, you should, at a minimum, do as well as you can in your classes and join a journal of some sort.

And, of course, you should work to make your application as compelling as possible.
