See the guide, below, for links to everything you need to land your dream clerkship.

The class of 2021 will gain access to OSCAR on February 5. Prepare yourself and learn how to find open positions, research judges, and prepare for interviews.

Research Skills

Choosing a Paper Topic and Avoiding Preemption

When you have to write a paper or note for a seminar, class, or journal, the process can seem overwhelming. The Law Library has resources to help you break the project into smaller, manageable pieces (think up an idea, narrow your topic, check for preemption, etc.) and to take each piece step-by-methodical-step.

Learn how to generate a never-before-written paper topic using skills and tools from the Law Library!
