i'm looking for advice. i recently got it in my head that i'd like to get a clerkship on the U.S. supreme court, preferably with justice scalia. i'm a 2L at a high t2, and have a good GPA (3.60). i'm not especially interested in constitutional law, but i'd be willing to take some more courses in it if it helps. i'm not on any journal, but i'm a good writer, and used to be editor of my school newspaper.
i'm not U.S. citizen, but i could probably stay in country if i wanted to. i'm also a leftist. i worked for legal aid last summer and will work for a union this summer.
i realize there may be some obstacles, and that other people may be better qualified than me on paper. but i get girls who are way out of my league, so why not jobs? so i need advice - what can i do to persuade justice sclia (or whomever?) that i should get the clerkship?
