On Wednesday, October 16th, AABANY’s Judiciary Committee sponsored a state clerkships information session at NYU School of Law at which a panel of judges and former law clerks gave their perspectives on the roles and responsibilities of New York state law clerks, how to apply, and what the benefits are of doing a clerkship.
On the panel were the Hon. Doris Ling-Cohan, Supreme Court, New York County, the Hon. Jeffrey K. Oing, Supreme Court, New York County, Katherine Kenney, former Assistant Apellate Court Attorney, New York State Supreme Court, Appellate Division, Fourth Department, and Julie Kwon, former law clerk for the Hon. Eileen Bransten, Supreme Court, New York County, Commercial Division. The panel was moderated by Theo Cheng (Partner, Fox Horan & Camerini LLP), co-chair of the Judiciary Committee. Attendees received handouts prepared by AABANY on insights from judges and law clerks about the clerkship experience and application process along with suggested judicial clerkship research tools.
AABANY thanks all the panelists for donating their time and insights to make this information session a success.
