WVU Law Class of 2023 graduates will spend their summers preparing
for the bar exam and then dive into new careers, which range from clerkships
with federal and state judges to positions in law firms and government agencies
all across the country. Here are a few of their stories:
Ridgeway will begin a two-year clerkship with the Hon. Michael J. Aloi, United States Magistrate Judge for the Northern District of West Virginia, in Clarksburg. She served as a judicial extern in Judge Aloi’s chambers during law school and was eager to return to the “very hands-on opportunity.” While externing, Ridgeway attended hearings, helped write orders, and even assisted in handling two civil motions from start to finish.
