Opperman Institute of Judicial Administration Summer Fellows have finished their first year at NYU School of Law. The fellowship is a full-time position from late May through early August and is supervised by Professors Oscar Chase, Samuel Estreicher and Troy McKenzie and Opperman Institute Executive Director Torrey Whitman. It integrates an intensive note-writing experience and research responsibilities with exposure to judges and academics. Notably, the fellows assist in preparing and attending the annual week-long program for new appellate judges. Program faculty includes distinguished state and federal judges from all over the country.
The fellowship provides a stipend. Recent Opperman Institute Summer Fellows have clerked for judges on the Supreme Court of the United States, State Supreme Courts, U.S. Courts of Appeals, and U.S. District Courts.
