Many specialty courts hire judicial externs and law clerks!

  • Judge Stewart F. Alford, IV (Department of Labor Administrative Law Judge)
  • Judge Kathryn Davis (U.S. Court of Federal Claims)
  • Judge William Lafferty (U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of California) and his current law clerk and Berkeley Law extern
  • Sierra Paola (Attorney Advisor to Department of Labor Acting District Chief Administrative Law Judge Christopher Larsen)
