Locke Lord encourages summer associates to seek judicial clerkships. Not only do judicial clerkships in federal and state courts across the country provide a boost to a starting lawyer's career, but they also provide invaluable real world experience. We provide an additional compensation bonus for certain clerkships and give one-year credit toward an associate's starting salary and partnership class. An estimated 11 percent of Locke Lord lawyers serve judicial clerkships. Below is a list of former judicial clerks from Locke Lord as a contact resource for those considering a judicial clerkship.
