Shortly after taking the phone call from Associate Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr., Megan Dillhoff became the second NDLS graduate to accept a Supreme Court judicial clerkship for the October 2014 Supreme Court term. Earlier this term, G. Ryan Snyder accepted his clerkship offer from Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr.
Ryan and Megan are the third and fourth NDLS grads to be named Supreme Court judicial clerks in the past decade. Last year, according to data reported to the American Bar Association, Notre Dame stood in a tie for 10th place among all U.S. law schools for its rate of placing students in federal judicial clerkships.
“To have one clerk selected for a Supreme Court clerkship is an honor for the student and for Notre Dame,” Dean Nell Jessup Newton noted. “To have two selected in the same school year is all the more remarkable. I couldn’t be more proud of these outstanding grads and the faculty who supported and worked with them.”
