The Heritage Foundation believes in bringing the best and brightest to the fore to serve America. Constitutionalists on the federal bench represent that standard of excellence, and they, like all federal judges, rely heavily on their clerks for the legal research needed to administer justice in full accordance with the Constitution.
John Malcolm, the head of our Institute for Constitutional Government, spoke with the New York Times about the launch of the federal judicial clerkship academy saying, “It allows us to establish relationships with very bright lawyers who are potential future stars in the legal community either on the right or on the left.”
The program will give applicants practical advice on the daily work of clerks, including technical issues and legal writing. It will also offer sessions on originalism and textualism, to advance a better understanding of the Constitution.
Heritage Members make it possible for us to support judges who uphold the law and defend liberty from the federal bench. Thank you for investing in our future.
How else should Heritage prepare the next generation of constitutionalist judges?
