This Program enables students to serve as a clerk for the Supreme Court of the Northwest Territories as a research project for credit towards their JD. As clerk you will be based in Yellowknofe NWT and travel occasionally to outlying regions with the Supreme Court of the NWT. The program is carried out in both the Fall and Winter semesters.
"To have the opportunity to travel the north with the Judges, lawyers, court staff etc. was an absolutely once in a lifetime unforgettable experience. I completely fell in love with the North and would have most certainly stayed had I not had a child back in Newfoundland in University. I could spend hours talking about my experiences there and will certainly never forget that time in my life. What a gift to have been able to do that and especially while still a student. It is an experience that you would never get while traveling the North as a tourist."

"The most memorable part of my UWindsor experience has been the semester that I spent in the Windsor Law-Supreme Court of the Northwest Territories Clerkship Program... The program, practical learning experience and exposure far surpassed anything that I could have imagined... I am confident that I will carry these experiences with me for the duration of my career."
