The Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law (Catholic Law) hosted its fourth annual Judicial Clerkship Opinion Writing Conference from Thursday, February 22 through Saturday, February 24.

This year’s conference brought to campus thirty-six rising law clerks who in the upcoming year will serve in the chambers of either the Federal Circuit Courts, the Federal District Courts, or the State Appellate Courts. It provided these clerks opportunities for learning the particulars of judicial opinion writing and allowed them to experience the supportive and connected community at Catholic Law. This unique undertaking by the Law School serves both the bench and bar by training law students in an important skill.
