Article I Clerkships
« on: December 19, 2008, 03:33:44 PM »
Is it worth it to do a clerkship for an Article I federal judge? How are those sort of clerkships viewed by employers? Is it possible to go from an Article I court to a circuit court clerkship?

Go!

Sure.

How are those sort of clerkships viewed by employers?

If you plan to practice in a specialized field with a corresponding court, then "good." (ie., government contracts for CFC, tax for TC).

Is it possible to go from an Article I court to a circuit court clerkship?

Sure.

circuit courts, by which I assume you mean federal courts of appeals, are article I courts.

Federal courts of appeals are Article III courts. Article I courts are things like bankruptcy court and tax court.

Only if it is for a magistrate in a good place.
