Federal Judicial Clerkships

Postby WhiteyCakes » Thu Jul 12, 2012 11:09 am

Hey folks,

I have been trying to find ranking information specifically related to the percentage of law school graduates from T-14s who become federal judicial clerks. The best source I could find was a top-ten list of schools published in 2009 from US News and World Reports: http://www.usnews.com/education/blogs/c ... kship-jobs

Does anyone have any sources for more recent info?

Thanks!

You can look into employment statistics like this for each individual school on LST's clearinghouse.

Extending past HYS is meaningless. Between Cornell (8%) and Duke (11%) is basically a wash, and schools fluctuate by +/- 2% regularly. E.g. I think Chicago was 13% for C/O 2010.

Maybe, but Georgetown at 3.9% is significant

Hence the range "Cornell to Duke".
