Georgia Law emphasizing clerkship benefits to students

Tuesday, August 23, 2016

Georgia Law faculty and career development staff have refocused their efforts on communicating to students the advantages of postgraduate federal judicial clerkships, and these efforts are showing considerable success. Since 2015, 30 students have secured federal clerkships both in the state of Georgia and beyond in states such as New Mexico, Texas and Florida. (One student will also clerk for the Delaware Court of Chancery, which is considered the most important court in the country for business law.) Furthermore, a recent ranking published by Excess of Democracy places Georgia Law among the top 20 law schools in the nation (and 9th among public law schools) for graduates from the Classes of 2013, 2014 and 2015 securing full-time, long-term federal clerkships.
