Clerkships provide a unique and valuable opportunity for law school graduates. However, cohorts of judicial clerks in Canadian courts show a lack of representation of racialized individuals, including Asian-Canadians. Creating spaces for students of colour in these clerkship programs begins with open, honest discussions - starting here.

This event is a discussion between Asian-Canadian former clerks of various courts, speaking about their respective clerkship experiences, as well as topics of diversity and inclusion in clerkships:

  • Do students of colour have a tendency to self-select out of the process?
  • What is the role of mentorship in encouraging Asian-Canadians to consider clerking?
  • Can more be done to make the application and clerking experience more inclusive and equitable?

The discussion will be followed by a Q&A session, where attendees can ask questions that they have always wondered about clerkships. Whether you have never heard of clerkships, been curious about them, or are preparing your applications for the upcoming recruit, we hope you join us!
