Arturo L. Jaramillo
Summer Law Clerk Program
  • Does your firm, business or agency want to be part of an ABA Awarded Program? It's the only one of its kind in the country!

If you answered yes to that question, then participating in the Arturo Jaramillo Clerkship Program can help accomplish these goals! Arturo L. Jaramillo, the first Hispanic president of the State Bar of New Mexico, developed the Summer Law Clerk Program in 1993 to offer first year law students of diverse backgrounds the opportunity to clerk in legal settings that provide a foundation for the students' law careers and to promote equal employment opportunities for persons who have historically been under-represented in the legal profession.

The program creates employment opportunities in medium and large law firms, state and local public agencies, and corporate law departments in New Mexico by providing a summer law clerk experience for motivated and deserving law students who meet the programs eligibility criteria.
