Justice for all requires a judicial system that reflects the people and communities it serves. And yet, each level of the U.S. judiciary lacks racial diversity, a trend that has persisted over time and that is reflected in the realm of judicial clerkships.
Join us for a webinar on Tuesday, November 29, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. ET, when an esteemed panel will discuss the topic and offer recommendations for how law admission and other student-facing staff can encourage students to reflect on the value of clerkships.
Panelists will share insights from their own experiences, from serving on the bench to serving as law clerks and will reflect on the strong career value of clerkship positions.
The webinar is hosted by RISE Alliance in conjunction with the Minority Network, Womxn of Color in Leadership in Law, and Latine Law School Admissions Professional Network.
