Judicial Clerkships

Part of a prestigious tradition

Offering graduates unrivaled insight into the judicial process in action, judicial clerkships are highly valued across legal markets. These coveted positions enable new lawyers to hone their legal research and writing skills.

UCLA Law is well positioned to assist clerkship candidates. Many of our alumni sit on the bench at the federal and state levels nationwide. The Office of Career Services helps guide clerkship candidates, facilitating faculty involvement, assisting with the application process and connecting applicants with former clerks and other clerkship-related resources. The Office, through our clerkship counselor, provides individual counseling and sponsors judicial clerkship programs and events for students to meet clerks, faculty and judges.

Our students have completed clerkships in chambers nationwide.
