Robert E. Wone Judicial Clerkship & Internship Conference

In 2003, Robert E. Wone, then an associate at Covington & Burling LLP and a former law clerk to Judge Raymond A. Jackson of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, wanted to introduce minority law students in the Greater Washington, D.C. area to the value of judicial internships and clerkships. Robert organized the inaugural Judicial Clerkship and Internship Conference, which was held at the Howard University School of Law.

In August 2006, shortly before Robert was to be sworn in as the President of Asian Pacific American Bar Association of the Greater Washington, D.C. Area (APABA-DC), Robert tragically lost his life in a violent crime. The Conference was renamed in his honor and memory.

Now an annual tradition for over a decade, the Conference continues to draw a diverse group of law students who are eager to gain a better understanding of the application and selection processes for clerkships and internships at all levels of the federal and state judiciaries.

AEF thanks the judges, law clerks, and volunteers for contributing their time and efforts to the Conference, as well as to the various law schools for hosting, and to the law firms, bar associations, and organizations that have been sponsoring partners throughout the years.
