For most law students, the prospect of securing a clerkship in Canada’s court system is something to strive for. During a clerkship, selected law students are placed with one or more supervising judges for the unique opportunity to experience the trial process first-hand, to work closely with judicial officials, and to substantively engage in a myriad of legal issues.
This year, Windsor Law’s Career Services Office reports that nine law students have obtained clerkships, including:
- Samuel Mazzuca – Court of Appeal for Ontario
- Ramisha Farooq – Federal Court of Canada
- Natasha Daley – Superior Court of Justice, Central West Region
- Andrea Bracaglia – Superior Court of Justice, Southwest Region
- Roxana Jahani Aval – Superior Court of Justice, Central East Region
- Ashley Ash – Superior Court of Justice, Toronto
- Leslie Schumacher – Superior Court of Justice, Northeast Region
- Robin Goldberg – Superior Court of Justice, Central East Region
- Hannah Thackeray – Superior Court of Justice, Divisional Court
“Windsor Law has always been strong at the clerkship level, but this year I think is especially impressive considering everything was processed remotely,” says director of career services Anna Maria Decia-Gualtieri. “I’m grateful to be working with such a great clerkship committee.”
Besides Decia-Gualtieri, current members of the clerkship committee include dean Christopher Waters and professors David Tanovich, Kristen Thomasen, and Richard Moon.
