The Business Law Section Diversity Clerkship Program for 1L and 2L Students

The Business Law Section Diversity Clerkship Program places up to 9 law students from diverse backgrounds in business court clerkships across the country. In evaluating a student’s diversity, the Section will give special consideration to individuals who have overcome social or economic disadvantages such as physical disability, financial constraints or cultural impediments to becoming a law student.

In addition to a placement in a business court clerkship, Diversity Clerkship participants will also receive a stipend of $6,000 to cover living expenses for the duration of the 8-week clerkship.
