Program to key on court administration

The University of Arkansas at Little Rock William H. Bowen School of Law and the Arkansas Administrative Office of the Courts will start a fellowship program for two law students next summer.

The selected students, who cannot be scheduled to graduate before the summer, will enroll for free in six three-day courses to become certified court managers.

Afterward, they will serve as interns in the office of a circuit court judge and court administrator, according to a news release from the university.

The State Court Partnership, between the law school and the National Center for State Courts, also will prompt the university's Career Services Office to "actively search, compile, and share job postings in court administration in state and federal courts, particularly those requiring completion of a law degree, and assist interested students in their pursuit of a career in court administration," the release states.

Court administrators do administrative and clerical work for judges.
