Students Learn About Appellate Court Clerking Directly From the Experts

Thursday, March 18, 2021

Judge Francie Riedmann organized and moderated a panel of law clerks to discuss career possibilities with Creighton law students over the noon hour on March 16, 2021. Katie Wayne, career law clerk for Judge Riedmann; Kristyn Wong, term law clerk for Justice Funke; Julie Ryan, former law clerk for Judge Bishop - now working at Abrahams Kaslow; and Christian Mirch, former law clerk for Chief Justice Heavican - now at the Department of Labor, formed the panel.  Clerks, along with Judge Riedmann, stood ready to answer questions from students about job requirements, work expectations, and work-life balance.

The event was held at the request of Assistant Dean of Career Development Mandy Whiddon and Director of Legal Research & Writing Carol Knoepfler.

The panel, always a popular opportunity for the multiple students exploring judicial clerkships following graduation, hopes to return to in-person presentations in 2022.
