Robert E. Wone Judicial Clerkship & Internship Conference

The Wone Conference is an annual event that brings together judges and former clerks to provide minority law students information about clerkships and internships in a wide range of tribunals—appellate, trial, federal, state, and administrative. For over fifteen years, the Wone Conference has drawn a diverse group of law students from the D.C. area who are eager to gain a better understanding of what it means to be a judicial law clerk or intern. It is co-sponsored by AEF, APABA-DC, HBA-DC, SABA, and CAMBA minority bar associations.
