Myth Versus Reality: Federal Clerkships, State & County Clerkships



Talk about prestige, a clerkship is one of the highest honors in the legal profession and there are numerous places you can clerk. What a fantastic opportunity this can provide to advance your career and be part of the inner workings of the court system. And you can do this at any point in your career. In fact, clerkships are not just for recent graduates, they are also for people who have been practicing for quite a while and are seeking the opportunity to give something back to the legal system.

LEGALMYTH:
Only people who were on law review at Harvard Law School can get a clerkship.

LEGALAUTHORITY:

There are thousands and thousands of clerkships and they are open to all! Certainly, the more prestigious clerkships can be more difficult to get. Nevertheless, you too can be a clerk!
