National Bar Association Summer Judicial Clerkship Program (SJCP) 2017 Application (For Summer 2018)
Since its inception in 2016, SJCP has placed hundreds of diverse law students with judges across the country. In its most recent summer, the SJCP placed law students in both federal and state courtrooms. Our goal is to place over 100 law students this year. Students will be interviewed on a select selection. Placement will based on merit, preferred location, preferred practice area, and needs of participating judges.
The clerkship program is a non-paid internship program. All students selected must commit to at least six (6) weeks in the program. To apply, please download and complete the form below and submit all necessary documents. All materials, including letters of recommendation, must be received via email or mail on or before 5:00PM CST Friday, December 8, 2017
***We understand that some students, specifically 1Ls, may not have grades to submit by the deadline. Please note, that GPA is not the sole determinant for acceptance into the program nor a barrier for participation, rather, it is a factor. Thus, applicants will have the opportunity to submit grades after applications are received. If your grades are still not received by the time of your interview, please be prepared to discuss your first semester, classroom experience.
