Extern for District Court Judge vs. CoA Judge

Postby wordtoyourmother12 » Fri Aug 27, 2010 7:50 pm

Hi friends,

I'm pretty set on doing a part-time externship with a Federal Judge next Spring. I'm lucky enough that a District Judge has already expressed interest in taking me on. But, there is a pretty good chance I might have the chance to extern with a 9th Circuit Judge.

Im more inclined to extern for the District Judge because I know him to be a really great, personable guy. I mention this because he may serve as a better connection. Also, it would save me a horrible commute to the 9th Circuit Judge.

That brings me to my question. Is it far more prestigious to extern for the 9th Circuit Judge and thus worth the commute, less familiarity? Or are the two more or less interchangeable and I should go with the District Court Judge.

If it's relevant, I am very interested in clerking down the road.

Thanks!

Not even a little bit.
