Drexel Clerkship Resources
Sample materials, state specific information, panel recordings and answers to your frequently asked questions can be found at our online Judicial Clerkships guide.

  • Clerkships are for everyone – apply for clerkships regardless of your GPA. Each judge has their own hiring credentials and GPA is only one factor considered.
  • Apply broadly – you do not have to take the bar in the same state where you clerk.
  • Our alumni clerks have gone on to positions in everything from large firms to government to public interest to policy. Clerking makes you a better lawyer.
  • NJ judges generally hire earlier than PA. There are also more positions in NJ. This means you may have a position lined up early in your 3L year.

Reminder: 3Ls, it’s not too late to apply for 2022-2023 Law Clerk opportunities. The deadline is on May 31, so there’s still time!

Careers in Compliance
Wednesday, June 8, 2022, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Businesses and nonprofits face an ever-changing landscape of regulations. From federal and state laws, to agency rules, to industry-based ethics, lawyers are frequently called upon to navigate this complex terrain. In recent years, industries such as finance, healthcare, and higher education have seen increased need for compliance professionals. What do compliance professionals do? How can you learn more about industries and companies that may be hiring? And how can you leverage your JD to obtain those positions? Come hear from our panel of experts and enjoy an evening of networking at the City Bar.

Careers in Labor & Employment Law
Tuesday, June 28, 2022, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Labor and employment law encompasses various topics, including pay and benefits, harassment and discrimination, whistleblower protections, and health and safety. The practice of labor and employment can vary, from advising businesses on complying with applicable laws and regulations to helping protect workers when their rights are being violated. In this program, panelists will discuss what practicing labor and employment law involves, the differing career paths available, and the areas of growth.

Careers in Cyber Security & Data Privacy Law
Thursday, August 4, 2022, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Can you name an industry that is not impacted by cybersecurity or data privacy? Probably not, which is one reason why these are two of the fastest growing and exciting areas of the law. International, federal, state, and local laws and regulations in cybersecurity and data privacy are rapidly evolving in response to emerging issues that seem to change almost daily. As the legal and regulatory environment continues to evolve, organizations are working hard to comply and protect the information they hold, paving the way for law firm, in-house, and public sector opportunities for new lawyers or lawyers in transition. Cybersecurity and data privacy attorneys work in litigation, regulatory, and transactional practices, as such these fields remain open to a diverse array of practice settings and require a diverse set of skills. Join our panel as they discuss careers in the evolving areas of cybersecurity and data privacy law.
