“International” Clerkship Opportunity for JD students

From The American Lawyer: "For the hyperambitious, the only federal court clerkships worth striving for are in the chambers of elite judges, acting as way stations on the road to a clerkship on the U.S. Supreme Court. Some choose a different path to clerkship paradise, however, one that leads through courts in the South Pacific. These former U.N. trust territories have legal systems similar to those of the United States. And many invite American law graduates to spend a year or two working in their courts as clerks and counsel" For more information, please click here.
