Judicial Clerkships

Judicial Clerkships are a great opportunity for students to see the law working from a unique perspective.  It is also a great way for students to apply the knowledge they are learning in the classroom to the real-world. Judicial clerkships can be obtained throughout the state of Tennessee as well as in the federal courts.  The clerkship application process is competitive and highly selective.  Students who are interested in judicial clerkships should contact the Office of Career and Professional Development early in the school year.

If you have questions about clerkship opportunities or the application process, please contact the Office of Career and Professional Development at (615) 460-8400.
