ABA Business Law
Summer Clerkship Opportunities

The American Bar Association Summer 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
• To provide students with a foundation in various aspects of business law

Up to nine interns will be placed in business court clerkships in the Philadelphia Commerce Court or the Delaware Court of Chancery. Interns will also be given a summer stipend of $6,000.

The Application Process:

Applications are due January 31, 2008. Students will be notified in March 2008.
