While traditional clerkship opportunities are available only to select law school graduates from the top of their class, Temple Law is proud to offer a unique federal judicial clerkship clinical for current law students. Students in Temple's prestigious Federal Judicial Clerkship Clinical Honors Program work for federal judges over the course of a full academic year and participate in the practical aspects of jurisprudence. Working alongside judges and their full-time clerks, students draft orders, research issues, prepare bench memoranda, and observe judicial proceedings. The program consists of eight to ten hours a week in chambers and a classroom component focused on the current issues impacting the federal courts. The classroom component of the course is taught by Judge Lawrence F. Stengel, United States District Court Judge.
