Judges not around all summer?

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Apr 13, 2010 9:05 pm

So I accepted a judicial internship in January. I emailed the judge today to tweak my starting date by 3 days or so. He emails back that that's cool, but that "I should know" that he will be gone 4 of my 8 weeks.

Is this common? Not sure I would have accepted (and turned down offers from higher courts) had he been up front about this. Kinda pissed.

It's not uncommon.

But most of your work would probably be with his clerks anyway.
