Appellate court clerkships are probably the single most prestigious job you can get coming out of law school.
Especially if they're in the highest appeals court of all.  Supreme Court clerkships are the golden ticket in terms of lawyer's resumes.

Well, you don't get SCOTUS clerkships without doing a year somewhere else first. (Almost always at a prestigious COA)
