Erno Lindner, a third-year law student in the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law, has been chosen to serve a clerkship with Chief Bankruptcy Judge David S. Kennedy of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Tennessee. He will begin the year-long clerkship in August 2010, following graduation from law school and after taking the bar examination.

Following his internship, Lindner will be working with the Memphis law firm of Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz.

Lindner is a member of the editorial board of the University of Memphis Law Review. He participated in moot court competitions and was a member of the Conrad B. Duberstein National Bankruptcy Moot Court Team. 

Among his numerous honors are the CALI Excellence for the Future Award and the Dean’s Award for Excellence for Best Oral Advocate and for Best Memorandum.  Lindner also has been a student ambassador, an orientation leader, and a pupil member of the Leo Bearman Sr. American Inns of Court.

A native of Budapest, Hungary, Lindner earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of North Carolina. He is married to Emily Lindner and has a son, Erno.

The Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law was recently ranked by preLaw magazine as a best value law school, based on the combination of three criteria: low tuition, the high percentage of graduates passing the Tennessee bar exam, and the success of graduates in finding employment. The school is fully accredited by the American Bar Association and is a member of the Association of American Law Schools, the society for legal education in the United States.  Graduates of the Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law include judges, other public servants, and leading practitioners in the Mid-South and throughout the nation. Beginning with the spring semester of 2010, the school’s home will be the historic former U.S. Customs House in downtown Memphis, near the city’s judicial and legal community.
