Consistent with its commitment to the judiciary and reflecting one of its core values of “service to state and society,” the University of Georgia School of Law is pleased to announce that 10 first-year law students were awarded fellowships to pursue judicial clerkships this summer. These students are currently working throughout the Peach State in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia and the Georgia Court of Appeals in addition to State Courts, Superior Courts and Probate Courts. This program enables students to see the immense value of working for judges at a variety of levels: they learn the role of the judiciary in our country’s legal system, see the importance of public service firsthand, develop critical thinking and writing skills, and make valuable connections.
