What's the general consensus on this? Already have an offer from the firm I did summer associateships at (120 some attys, $120K first year associate salary). I understand that a clerkship (especially federal) is prestigious and great training ... but is there really much of a point if I already have an offer at a big (for my area) firm? Just curious as to what your opinions were.
Many prestigious firms require their associates to clerk.

Do you want to be a litigator? If so, I think you should go for it. Otherwise, not so much.
