The Alexander Fellows Program places students as junior clerks in the chambers of selected federal judges. Students in the program spend a semester working full time in chambers and also take a special seminar at the law school on issues related to clerking and the judicial function. At the end of the semester, students meet with the chair of the Faculty Clerkship Committee to review their fellowship experiences.

The program is highly selective.  Absent unusual circumstances, students selected for the Alexander Fellows Program have a class rank that places them in the top 25 percent of the class.
