Supreme Court Clerk: How many days/week and weeks/year

looking at that calender, the supreme court is only in session 79 days for the entire term, from october to september. of course, there's a lot of legwork that goes into, but how much do they actually do? They get hired in October, and work through June. Are they putting in 40 hour weeks? It would be interesting to know.

Professors at my school who have spoken about it say it is very hard work.  80+ hours.
