This week at Mizzou Law, there are several interesting opportunities for students. On Monday, April 8th, there will be a “Judicial Clerkship Application Forum” at 1:00 in the Courtroom. Are you a 2L interested in applying to judicial clerkships after graduation? Are you a 1L who wants to learn about the process for future applications? Professors Erin Hawley and Ben Trachtenberg will discuss the general hiring processes, including types of clerkships and general qualifications for different levels of clerkships. Additionally, they will provide a timeline for applying to state and federal clerkships and information about OSCAR, the system used for applying to some federal judicial clerkships. Finally, they will provide information we have gathered regarding specific Missouri judges’ hiring preferences. Don’t miss this event, co-sponsored by the American Constitution Society and the Federalist Society. Lunch will be provided so please RSVP on Symplicity. On Wednesday, April 10th in the Courtroom at 1:00 will be the first of two mandatory pre-registration externship class meetings for all 1L and 2L students who wish to receive credit for a summer unpaid internship.
