RWU Grads Successful in Judicial Clerkship Market

Posted by David Logan on 05/06/2013 at 04:30 PM

The crowning achievement for many 3Ls is the opportunity to serve as a law clerk to a judge after graduation.  Judicial clerkships provide a great transition from the ivory tower of law school to practice, and often yield a mentor/mentee relationship that lasts a lifetime (as was the case for me). http://law.rwu.edu/sites/law.rwu.edu/files/flipbooks/spring2012/index.html#/20/

I am proud to report on the success of recent RWU Law grads in the highly competitive clerkship market: more than 15% of the class of 2012 landed judicial clerkships.

Below you can see how that number compares with other schools in New England, and following that is a chart setting out how RWU grads fare against graduates of “top 25” schools.
