Judicial Clerkship Program

Judicial Clerkship Program

Justice David K. Thomson of the New Mexico Supreme Court, the State Bar of New Mexico Committee on Diversity in the Legal Profession and the Young Lawyers Division are proud to announce the application process is now open for the inaugural Judicial Clerkship Program. The purpose of this jointly initiated program is to provide opportunities to students who are members of traditionally underrepresented groups in the legal profession, particularly within the judiciary. An additional goal of the program is to prepare underrepresented individuals with the tools necessary to obtain judicial clerkships. The program provides opportunities to underrepresented students, which may include, but is not limited to, members of racial or ethnic minorities, women, identify as LGBTQ, students with disabilities, students who are economically disadvantaged.

 

About: The program is a full-time (32 hours per week), 9 week summer internship program open to all second-year diverse law students. While the hope is that the Clerkship will take place in person, the on-going developments with COVID-19 will dictate the implementation of the program. The 2021 Clerkship may take place virtually or as a hybrid of virtual/in-person attendance. The Clerkship will primarily take place with the New Mexico Supreme Court and with the New Mexico Court of Appeals.
