If you’re interested in earning money for a summer clerkship, and you’re planning on working in the Southern District of Texas, you should apply to the Blask Fellowship. The deadline’s been EXTENDED, which leads me to believe they didn’t receive many candidates. GO APPLY!
Seriously, you NEED to apply. What have you got to lose? Most of the legal clerkships you come across are UNPAID. Why not take advantage of this excellent scholarship and earn money while gaining valuable legal experience? Plus, if you are selected as a recipient, you can add it to your list of resume honors (added bonus)!
Here’s a list of some of the places you can secure a position and get paid for your service:
- U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit
- U.S. District Court
- U.S. Bankruptcy Court
- U.S. Magistrate Court
- U.S. Trustee
- Federal Bureau of Investigation
- Federal Public Defender
- U.S. Attorney
- U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement
- Office of Homeland Security
