Share the Wealth Clerkship Program

Just The Beginning – A Pipeline Organization (JTB-APO)’s Share the Wealth Clerkship Program is a special opportunity to be considered for multiple federal district court clerkships in one interview: rising 2Ls and 3Ls and recent graduates interested in a federal judicial clerkship are encouraged to apply for this opportunity. The application process is ongoing for seven district court interview opportunities for the 2015-16 clerkship term. The deadline to apply for the 2014 interviewing session is August 18, 2014.

To apply, please carefully review the application instructions and clerkship announcement.

Share the Wealth is a referral program run by judges in partnership with JTB-APO. Participating judges screen qualified law student applicants, conduct panel interviews with twelve students, and consider them for clerkship positions. At the conclusion of this initial process, students who are not extended an offer by one of the judges may have their application packages shared with additional judges who have requested to receive information on applicants through JTB-APO. Many judges contact JTB-APO to seek assistance in identifying competitive candidates from diverse backgrounds for consideration.
