Minority Clerkship Program
This program provides the opportunity for qualified minority law students to work as law clerks or summer associates in a firm, legal department or government agency at the end of their first year of law school. The experience better prepares the students to compete for permanent legal positions in the future, while providing employers with the opportunity to work with well-qualified minority students.
The program began in 1991 under the leadership of Judge Ronald B. Adrine. Since then, it has involved over 40 of Cleveland's legal employers and has placed over 300 law students in clerkship positions.
The program is accessed through a competitive application process. Applications and information are made available in November with deadlines for applying in January.
The deadline for the 2016 Minority Clerkship Program has passed.
