27 Alabama Law Grads Appointed to Judicial Clerkships
Twenty seven recent Alabama Law graduates secured judicial clerkships commencing in 2011. This news is especially impressive given the intense competition for clerkships. According to the New York Times, last year’s clerkship applications exceeded 380,000 for fewer than 1,000 spots.
In addition, every student currently ranked in the top 5% of the Class of 2012 has already secured a federal clerkship following graduation.
