Law Clerk Program
Clerkships are available throughout the year to law students, primarily located in the state. The Attorney General’s Office employs law clerks in its Civil, Criminal, Medicaid Fraud and Public Protection Departments.
Typically, each department has two law clerks, with new clerks being named every spring, summer and fall.
The Attorney General strives to give Arkansas law students the first opportunity to clerk with the office by interviewing students on the two law school campuses in the state. Interviews are conducted in the fall with students at the University of Arkansas School of Law in Fayetteville for clerkships the following summer. Interviews on the UALR William H. Bowen School of Law campus in Little Rock occur during the spring semester for clerkships during the following fall and spring semesters. Interviews on the law school campuses are coordinated with the Career Services Offices of each campus. Positions not filled through this process may then be opened to students from universities outside of Arkansas.
In-state students interested in clerkships with the Attorney General’s Office should sign up for an interview through their Career Services Office when interview dates are posted at the law school. Out-of-state students may mail, fax or email a resume and cover letter to:
