FREE Clerkship Chat – October 27, 2012

Law students, lawyers, all are welcome.  Come with plenty of questions and your Judicial Clerk Review professionals will answer them.



All About Judicial Clerkships

Let me reiterate – I loved my clerkship experiences and am loving them still what with all of the benefits that I continue to see.  Simply put, I’m a great lawyer thanks in large part to my clerkships and my judges.  In no other job do attorneys have a chance to see, from a judge’s perspective, how the judiciary operates – what goes into deciding a summary judgment motion, how to factor in a criminal defendant‘s background and history in sentencing decisions, and how to ensure that the entire process is fair to all involved, no matter what your personal feelings might be.  The irony is that judges must remove their personal judgment in order to render legal judgments.  Technically speaking.

But I won’t put everything I know about clerkships in this one post.  I’ll spare you that…for now.  😉  Take this poll and share with me your thoughts about clerkships.

I’m a lawyer, and my job as a law clerk from 2002 to 2004 is probably the best job I have ever had.  I served as a law clerk twice, once for a state appellate court justice and then for a federal district court judge.  Very different experiences, both of which I loved.  Both of my clerkships, and my judges, were instrumental in my professional and personal development.  But, more on that later.

Right now, take some time, get to know us (, and let us get to know you.  We want this blog to be interactive.  So, let’s talk about clerkships.  Introduce yourself in the Comments section.  Are you a law clerk?  Former law clerk?  Do you want to clerk?
