PLSI Judicial Clerkship Handbook

The PLSI Judicial Clerkship Committee created this Judicial Clerkship Handbook to encourage and assist Native American law students in applying for and obtaining judicial clerkships across all levels of courts and tribunals.  Because judicial clerks play a central role in researching and drafting court decisions, Native American judicial clerks can help foster judicial understanding about tribes as sovereign governments and develop case law that respects tribal sovereignty and rights.  Many judicial clerks go on to become members of the judiciary.  We hope to encourage more Natives to pursue judicial clerkships and judicial positions on the state, tribal, and federal benches.
