The current judicial internship process is overwhelming and fragmented. Law students spend hours and hours compiling unique application materials to send out to individual judges.
Meanwhile judges either receive no student applications or too many applications to handle. It is an administratively daunting system that needs to be improved.
The Fulton & Waite Scholars program was created by former law students as a solution to these problems.
We streamline the application process for students and unite the pool of applicants for judges. Fulton & Waite Scholars increases flexibility, saves time, and provides a unique scholars program for qualified law students.
Additionally, we take the burden of vetting students off the shoulders of judges and judicial assistants while ensuring each Fulton & Waite Scholar is a willing, engaged, and committed student of the law.
