Nov 06, 2018

On November 2, 2018, co-founder Claire Madill joined Heidi Bond, Leah Litman, and moderator Michigan Supreme Court Justice Bridget Mary McCormack at a panel at the University of Michigan Law School. The purpose of the panel was to discuss the issue of sexual misconduct in the federal judiciary, what progress has been made, and what may happen moving forward.


Professor Beth Wilensky (@bethwilensky) live-tweeted the panel, if you would like more information.


We are a group of current and recent law clerks who, in the wake of published reports of harassment within the federal judiciary, banded together to help the federal judiciary combat these problems. We subsequently established Law Clerks for Workplace Accountability, an organization whose mission is to ensure that the federal judiciary provides a safe workplace environment, free of harassment, for all employees and to assist the judiciary in reaching this goal.
