USD Law Ranked Top Ten in Clerkships for Second Straight Year
The USD School of Law jumped one spot to eighth with 22.39 percent of the class of 2017 obtaining state and local clerkships.
“USD Law has an amazing and comprehensive writing program that helps our students receive these clerkships. We are proud of this ranking and look forward to seeing many more success stories from our students,” said Liz Taggart, the law school’s admission director.
Clerkships are highly sought after positions that offer an array of experiences that help young lawyers grow professionally.
“Clerkships are a prestigious and important link to many future opportunities in the law such as working in high paying law firms, becoming a judge, and even becoming a law professor,” Taggart said.
