The Colorado Office of Administrative Courts has a law student clerkship program that provides students with experience in the judicial decision-making process. Law clerks are generally assigned to 3 or 4 judges for a period of time, and may rotate assignments to work with 6 or more judges during the course of a clerkship. Law clerks are extensively involved in the judges’ work, attending hearings and assisting in drafting factual findings and legal conclusions. Clerks also prepare memoranda on complex issues of law. The clerkship program exposes students to a wide variety of administrative law issues handled by the Office, including professional and occupational licensing, public benefits, mediation and workers’ compensation. The Program functions in coordination with the Law School Externship Office and the clerks pursue academic credit in these non-paid positions (2-6 hours with a norm of 3 hours). The Office is currently seeking to fill two vacancies for fall 2017. Senior Judge Edwin L. Felter, Jr. coordinates the Office’s clerkship program and may be contacted with questions about clerkship opportunities.
