Clerkship Panel at GMU a Valuable Resource for Law Students
On February 22, 2018, FBA-NOVA's Young Lawyers Committee and the Antonin Scalia Law School’s Office of Career and Academic Services at George Mason University co-sponsored a judicial clerkships panel in Arlington, moderated by the Honorable Michael S. Nachmanoff, U.S. Magistrate Judge (E.D. Va.).
Law students from Virginia and Washington, D.C. heard from a diverse panel of former law clerks with varied experience in state and federal courts. Our panelists were:
- Scott Thomas, Career Law Clerk to the Honorable T.S. Ellis, III, U.S. District Judge (E.D. Va.);
- Bobby Farlow, former law clerk to the Honorable Anthony J. Trenga, U.S. District Judge and the Honorable John F. Anderson, U.S. Magistrate Judge (E.D. Va.);
- Keith Minson, former law clerk to the Honorable Bruce D. White, Chief Judge, Fairfax County Circuit Court;
- Trish Minson, former law clerk to the Honorable Cynthia D. Kinser, Chief Justice, Supreme Court of Virginia; and
- Joshua Cumby, former law clerk to the Honorable Leonie M. Brinkema, U.S. District Judge and the Honorable John F. Anderson, U.S. Magistrate Judge (E.D. Va.).
After the event, approximately two dozen attendees joined Judge Nachmanoff and the panelists for refreshments and one-on-one discussion about clerking and related topics.
The YLC thanks Judge Nachmanoff and the excellent panelists for sharing their thoughts and advice on the judicial clerkship process.
