Revolutionizing what it means to be a clerk.
“Hi, welcome to your first day at Super Big Law Firm, LLC, here is your cubicle and your mountain of mindless paperwork, good luck and I’ll see you in a month!”
Although most firms likely wouldn’t use this type of wording, this is the reality that most young undergrad and law school students tend to face when looking for a position in a law firm; An endless pile of work with little to no communication or explanation as to the “why” behind what you are doing. As a team of trailblazers looking to change what it means to be a lawyer, our ethos is to attack this issue with the legal field one handful of clerks at a time.
Intentionality is the key to everything we do here at CORPlaw–yes, we do mean everything–and our semester-long Legal Clerkship program is no exception to this rule we define ourselves with. From the program's debut on May 17th, 2021, our team has undergone a process of trial and error to see what works and what doesn’t with each launch being significantly better than the last. So, what makes CORPlaws Legal Clerkship program unique?
Our twist comes as a result of our very own teaching program: CORPlaw U.
CORPlaw-U: CORPlaw University (“CORPlaw U”) refers to our firm teaching sessions, we put a major emphasis on ensuring that our team members don’t only know the “what” behind what they are doing but the “why” as well. A branch of CORPlaw-U can be seen in our Week 1 initial training, a week-long in-depth breakdown of our software, firm values, and skills required to succeed as a clerk. This is where we welcome our new clerks to CORPlaw with our comprehensive course of learning modules, hands-on exercises, and opportunities to meet the team. The learning process doesn’t stop here though. CORPlaw U branches out into the semester-long training as well through our weekly team meetings where we invite the team to actively listen and participate in the collective learning process.
