For all this talk about SCOTUS clerkships (and how people sometimes cite them when discussing schools), I would really prefer to see some statistics on general federal clerkships, preferably broken down by school. After all, the vast majority of people do not expect to grab a SCOTUS spot but may believe they are competetive for a federal clerkship.

Anyone know of a site which has this type of information?

A lot of people start in federal clerkships and move into SCOTUS clerkships. This is the case with many (most) of the young professors who were SCOTUS clerks at my school.

I'm sure that the schools that do the best as far as placing students in SCOTUS clerkships are also the best at placing students in federal clerkships as a whole.  I don't really have anything to back this up, I just sort of always figured it was true.

The appropriateness of Perpetua would probably depend on the tone of the writing.  When I used it, I (half playfully) thought the extra space made the words sort of resonate.
