ABA Council for Diversity in the Educational Pipeline

Since its inception in 2001, over one-thousand law students have participated in the ABA Judicial Clerkship Program (JCP) – a joint initiative by the ABA Council for Diversity in the Educational Pipeline (formerly the Council for Racial and Ethnic Diversity in the Educational Pipeline) and the ABA Judicial Division.  The JCP’s mission is to increase the number of diverse judicial clerks in the justice system.

The JCP consists of a three-day mock clerkship centered around a current legal issue before the United States Supreme Court.  Law students, working alongside and mentored by judges, discuss, research, and ultimately prepare an outline of the legal opinion.  View the JCP brochure and 2017 schedule.

The JCP is normally held at the ABA Midyear Meeting.  For one time only,  the 2018 JCP will be held in Chicago (April 19 – 21) in conjunction with the National Judicial Institute and Conclave, and the Judicial Division Spring Planning Meeting (April 18 – 20).  In 2019, JCP will return to the ABA Midyear Meeting.

Please feel free to contact Sharon Tindall (Sharon.Tindall@americanbar.org or  312-988-5642) for additional information.
