The Career Services Office will host a Judicial Clerkship Forum as the November program in our “Lunch with a Lawyer” series.  U.S. District Court Judge Karon O. Bowdre (’81) and her law clerk, Summer Davis (’09), will speak at the law school on Thursday, November 5 at 12:00 PM in room 120.  If you are interested in learning more about being a judicial clerk – the responsibilities, the general application process, what judges are looking for – then you do not want to miss this program!  Please stop by the Career Services Office to register. 

Judge Bowdre was a partner at the Birmingham firm of Rives & Peterson before joining the Cumberland law faculty in 1989.  She taught insurance law, legal ethics, and professional responsibility, and directed Cumberland’s legal research and writing program before being appointed U.S. District Judge for the Northern District of Alabama in 2001.   Summer Davis graduated in May and recently started working as a law clerk for Judge Bowdre.
