*Duke Law seeks Director of Clerkship Programs

*Duke Law seeks Director of Clerkship Programs
The Director of Duke Law’s Clerkship Programs, Judy Hammerschmidt, will soon be leaving the Law School to head across campus to launch the Duke Futures Program, a new initiative to connect Duke students and alumni to meaningful internships and job opportunities. 

During her time at the Law School, Judy has been a tireless advocate for our students, bringing her considerable talents and energies to bear on helping them identify and secure clerkships that offer invaluable experience and an advantage that will benefit them throughout the remainder of their careers.  She has strengthened our institutional relationships with judges at both the federal and state levels, and the results—including Duke Law alumni clerking on the Supreme Court and in meaningful, substantive clerkships throughout the country—speak for themselves.

Judy will be difficult, if not impossible, to replace. I hope you will help the Law School in our attempts to do so by spreading the word about the open position, and forward along to friends and colleagues the short job description attached to this email. If you have any specific questions, you may contact Amanda Lacoff (; 919-613-8527), who will be chairing the search committee.
