Legislative Clerkship Conference at Georgetown Law

April 6, 2011

Yesterday, Georgetown Law Center and Stanford Law School co-sponsored a conference entitled Legislative Clerkships and Their Implications for Legal Education, Politics, and the Law.  The conference brought together students, scholars, practitioners, and lawmakers to discuss the creation of a congressional law clerk program modeled after the judicial law clerk program and Honors programs at executive agencies.  A bill to create such a program garnered bipartisan support in the US House, where it passed in 2008 and 2009.  It is expected that similar legislation will be introduced in the current session.

Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) delivered the breakfast keynote address.  Rep. Dan Lungren (R-CA) keynoted the luncheon portion.  Among the other speakers was Katie Corrigan, Policy Director of the Kalmanovitz Initiative, who spoke about how her time as a fellow at Georgetown’s Federal Legislation Clinic shaped her career.  Click here to see a full agenda for the event.
