Among our lawyer ranks more than 25 former judicial clerks. While we certainly do not require our lawyers to have a judicial clerkship in their backgrounds, we recognize the value of clerkships and, in most cases, give full credit (up to two years) for completion of a clerkship.
Most Dickinson Wright lawyers who were judicial clerks completed their clerkships in the one to two years immediately following law school. A significant percentage of these lawyers were also former Dickinson Wright summer associates. Associates who joined the firm immediately after a clerkship but who were not previously employed by Dickinson Wright typically came through our interview process three to six months before the end of their clerkships.
If you are currently serving as a judicial clerk and would like to be considered for a position following your clerkship, please send a cover letter that indicates your practice area(s) of interest, a resume that includes your law school and undergraduate GPAs, your law school transcript and two writing samples to:
