Delaware Clerkships Panel Program and Delaware Firms “Reception”

More than half of all publicly-traded companies are incorporated in Delaware. The Delaware Court of Chancery and the Delaware Supreme Court, as the appellate court, decide issues of corporate law, M&A, and shareholder rights. Many corporate attorneys at New York’s and Delaware’s top firms began their careers as Delaware clerks. Professors Jill Fisch, Elizabeth Pollman, and Lisa Fairfax will moderate a panel discussion with current and former clerks of the Delaware Supreme Court and Delaware Court of Chancery about the clerking experience. Students will have an opportunity to speak with the current and former clerks and ask them questions about the application process, their judges, the clerking experience, and how it has helped them in their practice and careers, as well as to representatives from ILE member firms with Wilmington offices about the Delaware law practice.
