Gordon Arata Montgomery Barnett is proud to host three 1L summer clerks this summer: Sabrina Heavey, Aspen Murphy and Clarke Perkins. Our 4-week Diversity Summer Clerkship Program is structured to provide passionate, diverse law students with valuable insight into their future profession. Our clerks gain a hands-on introduction to the private practice of law while working alongside our attorneys on challenging assignments in real-world cases. Whenever possible, they attend depositions, settlement meetings and discovery conferences, meet presiding judges and interact with clients. Our Diversity Summer Clerkship embodies our mission to embrace a diverse, inclusive culture and develop relationships that endure through law school and beyond.
