SCOTUS clerk list
« on: May 17, 2005, 06:24:26 PM »
Anyone know where I can find a comprehensive list of SCOTUS clerks sorted by their law school over the past few years?

It's not very scientific, but there's a judicial gossip site called Underneath Their Robes run by one Article III Groupie, who has a bizarre obsession with Supreme Court clerks. Here are her lists:

October Term 2000: http://underneaththeirrobes.blogs.com/main/2004/09/justice_is_blin.html

OT 2002 and OT 2003: http://underneaththeirrobes.blogs.com/main/2004/10/the_young_turks.html

OT 2004: http://underneaththeirrobes.blogs.com/main/2004/09/here_they_come_.html

And her ongoing intensive profiles of the incoming class can be found here: http://underneaththeirrobes.blogs.com/main/the_elect_supreme_court_clerks/index.html

Intersting....Not many out of the T14 huh?  Or even the top five....what a shame, I guess I'll have to consider another career track.

Actually, I don't think it supports the T14 concept at all.  On the other hand, it does relate closely to the top 18-20ish.

I just kept seeing Harvard, Yale, and Chicago over and over and over again (with an occasional Ohio State, GW, or Kansas thrown in).

I think it supports a top 5 concept more than top 20.  However, the T14 concept is still bolstered when you look at the schools with fully national placement records.  Every school in the top 14 places their students fairly uniformly in the largest cities across the country, with a small bias towards the closest large city.  Texas is the highest ranked school outside of the top 14, and they're not even close to "national" - 75% of their grads stay in the state.

Also, I think the term "T14" comes more from the fact that since USNWR started ranking in the late 80's, no school has moved in or out of the top 14.  Everyone ranked 15 and below has stayed there and everyone ranked 14 and higher has stayed there for two decades.

At least the Ohio State and Kansas' gives us non-T14ers some hope.
