Check out Todd Bromwich’s Handbook giving you the ins and outs of Seasonal Clerkship applications!!
Seasonal clerkship programs generally available only to penultimate or final year law students and are used by firms to assess potential trainees. Clerks will typically be placed within one practice area of the firm and given a wide range of tasks, so that the firm may assess their competency and approach towards work. Firms also place great importance upon whether or not the clerk is a good cultural fit. This refers to your attitude, personality and work ethic and whether these match the characteristics the firm desires.
