Reception Introduces Students to New Jersey Judges
October 20, 2008 — Nine Superior Court judges met with Drexel Law students at the First Annual New Jersey Judiciary Reception on Oct. 20.
The reception gave dozens of students an opportunity to learn about clerkship opportunities within the New Jersey judiciary and to make personal connections with sitting jurists.
Alexandra Vecchio, Associate Director of Career and Professional Development, said the event was also designed to alert students to job opportunities that exist beyond the boundaries of Philadelphia.
New Jersey’s unified judiciary system allows attorneys who clerk in one county to get jobs in another at a later date, said Superior Court Judge Ronald E. Bookbinder of Burlington County.
The event drew 1Ls like Earthen Johnson, who is only two months into her legal education and not yet ready to apply for a clerkship.
“You’re a good person to meet,” Superior Court Judge Irvin J. Snyder of Camden County told her. “I’m always looking for new talent.”
