On February 23-25, 2023, The Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law (Catholic Law) in Washington, D.C., hosted 35 rising law clerks from 25 different universities across the country who will be serving in the chambers of Federal Circuit Courts, Federal District Courts, and State Appellate Courts in the upcoming year. The conference was coordinated by Professor A.G. Harmon, Associate Dean of Bench and Bar Programs.

The three-day, in-person conference provided the conferees the opportunity to learn the particulars of judicial opinion writing—a unique conference focus undertaken by the Law School to serve both the bench and bar by training law students in this important skill.
