Haha. Do I sense some jealousy? Or have you just learned when to shut your mouth? Check my past posts. I haven't been on here long, but I've discussed clerkships before. Thanks for playing!


no, the rolly-eyes --  ::) -- is indicative of disbelief.

so you have a history of making things up.  that proves what again?   ???



ps.  the  ??? is indicative of questioning.
I understood what the rolly-eyes meant. My point was that I shut you up & you had no real response. All you could say is, "I bet you don't!"

Feel free to question me all you want. It's just because you can't stand to be beaten. I've engaged in real discussions on here about the clerkship application process & my experience with it. You can call me a liar, but it is only because you feel intimidated. Bye!

Wait is this where I'm supposed to be impressed? Cuase I'm not feeling it for some reason.
Who are you?... Just feeling lonely and wanted to join?

Exactly. You have nothing. Go back to sleep.

no, your infantile commentary was just that boring.

now go back to momma's basement with your national geographics and don't bother the adults.
Nah. Instead I'll just finish studying for the Bar, take my vacation, and then go to work at my COA clerkship. But I mean you are clearly the expert of all that is law school.

Brilliant response. Thanks for the insight.

"Perhaps you didn't read my post, but I said that I would pre-screen for competency prior to the interview. I would look at grades, reputation of school and experience in similar legal environments."

Well then the OP is clearly fine. I mean, if you wouldn't care about law review/ journal, then nobody would. It's basically the biggest honor you can have in law school, but if you aren't interested, then I'm sure it doesn't actually matter.

Get over yourself. Your decision not to try for law review is TTT and stupid. Clinic, moot court, etc DO NOT carry as much weight. If you don't try out for it, it is because you are being lazy and immature. You are simply saying, "I don't think that'd be fun, so I'm not doing it." HTH. End of thread.

I think it's a big mistake. When employers look at resumes, they know that the only real reason not to try for law review/journals is, "Ehhh. Seems like a lot of work. I don't feel like it." It evidences a certain level of lazyness. They of course do not want those types of people.

3L job search / Re: District Court Clerkship
« on: June 16, 2008, 08:17:58 AM »
Clerkships in general are competitive. Most federal judges think quite highly of themselves and think that they deserve the pick of the applicants. I think the only place where you see the difference is when it comes to recommendations for deans/ law professors. Every school has a handful of judges that take recommendations for interviewees directly from the law school. If it is a circuit judge, the school will try to only send the best and brightest her way. If it is a district judge, the school might try to force the judge to go deeper into the class, by focusing on people not at the top of the class, but whom have e-board positions on secondary journals.

I applied quite broadly and, oddly enough, got about an equal number of circuit and district court offers. Only 1 judge that called I would categorize as a "safety." The others were all circuit judges in non-elite circuits (3, 5-6, 8, 10-11) and district judges in very prestigious districts. It involved some quick balancing on my part to determine which interviews I would schedule first. I ended up deciding to do circuits first and, now that the process is over, am very glad that I did so.

3L job search / Re: NY court of appeals clerkship

Since it is NY, arguably the most competitive market in the country, would it be more competitive/prestigious than a district court clerkship?
No, but good for a state court.
