Zafir Huq (3L) Accepts Elite Post-Bar Clerkship with the San Diego Public Defender’s Office

December 5, 2019

Congratulations to 3L Zafir Huq, who has accepted an elite Post Bar Clerkship with the San Diego Office of the Primary Public Defender. The Post-Bar Clerkship is a limited position offered to accepted candidates who have demonstrated a commitment to public service and indigent defense. The program places post-bar clerks in the Public Defender’s Misdemeanor Unit, requiring them to mirror schedules, take on caseloads, and advocate in court for clients. While there, post-bar clerks are put through various programs designed to improve their ability to work in the fast-paced environment of the Public Defender’s office. Zafir will begin his clerkship after he takes the February 2020 California Bar Examination.
