ABA Judicial Clerkship Program

The ABA Judicial Clerkship Program annually brings together minority law students, attorneys and judges from across the country for an intensive program designed to encourage students to seek judicial clerkships.  The Charleston School of Law made a three-year commitment to fund the participation of four to six students each year in the American Bar Association Judicial Clerkship Program.  In 2014, three students from the Law School attended this event in Chicago, Illinois from Thursday, February 6 through Saturday, February 8, 2014.  This year the program will be held in Houston, Texas.
