Debra Strauss is the national expert in judicial clerkships. A graduate of Yale Law School with a degree in psychology from Cornell University, Debra Strauss has more than a dozen years of experience as a Federal law clerk for two clerkship terms (former Chief Judge, Southern District of New York); in private practice at a prominent New York law firm; and as Director of Judicial Clerkship Counseling and Programs at Yale Law School. She established the judicial clerkship program there, which resulted in a record number of Yale students obtaining clerkships.

She then served as Project Director of the National Judicial Clerkship Study, on behalf of the National Association for Law Placement and the American Bar Association, and authored the report on the study, published as Courting the Clerkship: Perspectives on the Opportunities and Obstacles for Judicial Clerkships (National Association for Law Placement, Oct. 2000). She is the author of numerous articles on diversity issues and the courts, as well as the definitive book in this area --Behind the Bench: The Guide to Judicial Clerkships.





In addition, as adjunct professor and director, she developed the Federal Judicial Extern Honors Program at Pace University School of Law.

Debra Strauss is currently Professor of Business Law at Fairfield University Charles F. Dolan School of Business, where she teaches courses in the legal environment of business, international law, and law and ethics.
