I'm also signed up for Advanced Legal Writing and Civil Procedure 2 but I'm waffling. For daycare reasons and general boredom reasons. I'm going to try to switch it out for Feminist Jurisprudence and Drafting Legal Documents (but the waitlist on that is long, so probably futile).

I'm taking Business Associations, Fed Tax, Secured Transactions, Con Law, and Torts II.
Combine that with LR and I'm really not looking forward to the summer being over.

A friend of mine went to an ACS talk in the Loop, which featured four Federal judges talking about clerkships (7th CoA, ND IL, Magistrate).

The gist of the speech was clerking is risibly competitive, at all levels, at this time.  The Magistrate judge said that he hired someone from a T20, on the Editorial Board of their Law Review.  With previous clerking experience!  And years of BigLaw practice!

Ugh.  That's what I figured.

Do you *need* LR to land a clerkship, especially in this economic climate?  :-\
