Diversifying the Clerkship System with Aliza Shatzman

Thursday, February 9, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

flyer for event on 2/9 with Aliza Shatzman

How diverse are judicial chambers? Not very. Homogeneity in one of the legal community’s most coveted spaces has implications not just for judicial decision-making, but for judicial accountability and the future of the legal profession. Join Aliza Shatzman, President and Founder of The Legal Accountability Project (LAP), for a conversation about the lack of diversity in the clerkships, and how LAP is helping to democratize information about judges and infuse transparency into the opaque clerkship application process. 

Shatzman is an attorney and advocate based in Washington, DC who writes and speaks about judicial accountability, including for a House Judiciary Subcommittee hearing where she detailed her personal experience with harassment and retaliation by a former DC Superior Court judge.  Shatzman holds a JD from Washington University School of Law. 

Lunch will be served inside of Room 170 starting at 12:45 PM.
