Second Annual Judicial Clerkship Preparatory Program

The Law Center recently hosted its Second Annual Judicial Clerkship Preparatory Program.  Designed by Professors Frank Maraist, Andrea Carroll, and Ron Scalise, Associate Vice Chancellor Randy Thompson, and Tracy Evans, director of Career Services, the program is offered to second- and third-year students to assist them in overcoming the first few weeks of a judicial clerkship learning curve.  It is also intended to give students an advantage when seeking judicial clerkships upon graduation.
