UA Law Student Awarded ABA Business Law Diversity Clerkship
Posted on April 9, 2013
University of Arkansas School of Law first-year law student Donald Ung is one of nine law students in the nation selected for an American Bar Association 2013 Business Law Section Diversity Clerkship. Ung will spend the summer clerking for Judge Gail Andler in the Superior Court of California, Orange County in Santa Ana, CA.
The Business Law Section Diversity Clerkship Program encourages students to pursue business court clerkship opportunities and to consider careers in the practice of business law. Such clerkships provide students with the ability to gain experience in selected areas of business practice and become familiar with the legal issues many businesses face.
In addition to work with Judge Andler, the ABA Business Law Section will provide additional programming and networking opportunities for participants to strengthen their interest in business law. Ung will also be assigned a mentor in the Santa Ana area who will help guide his professional development in business law.
“Judge Andler is a very active judge in the community, and so I hope to learn more about her projects and her impact on the community,” Ung said. “I hope to represent UA well and sharpen my professionalism as a young attorney.”
Ung is the first University of Arkansas School of Law student to participate in the ABA’s Business Law Section Diversity Clerkship. He will receive a $6,000 stipend for the summer.
