The Business Law Diversity Clerkship Program

The Business Law Diversity Clerkship Program encourages students to pursue business court clerkship opportunities and to consider careers in the practice of business law. In considering 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.

The objectives of the Program include:

• To encourage more diverse law students to apply for clerkship positions;

• To foster relationships between business court judges and diverse law students; and

• To provide students with a foundation in various aspects of business law.

Up to nine interns will be given a summer stipend of $6,000.00 and placed in business court clerkships in the Philadelphia Commerce Court or the Delaware Court of Chancery. Other possible internship locations include New York and Florida.

Applications for the 2010 program are available at All application materials must be received on or before Friday, January 29, 2010. For more information about the Business Law Diversity Clerkship Program, please visit
