TU 3L Secures Judicial Clerkship
Friday, April 01, 2011
Meghan King, 3L at the TU College of Law, recently earned a clerkship with the Connecticut Superior Court, the state trial court of general jurisdiction.
The clerkship will last one year, and the starting time for the clerkship is flexible, though she will likely start in the fall of 2011. The main office is based in New Haven, but King can choose to live anywhere in Connecticut. She and other clerks will receive assignments from various judges. She obtained the clerkship by applying online, then following up with a trip to a career fair in Washington, D.C.
"I’m really hoping to strengthen my legal research and writing skills," King said. "It’s also a great opportunity to work with judges and develop mentoring relationships." King has worked at the Boesche Legal Clinic while at TU and has a strong interest in public interest law. "I see this as a way to get the experience and skills I will need to effectively advocate for my future clients."
