I don't know nearly enough about them - I am a 2L - when should I start getting things done?

You should've started last year by getting excellent grades and making LR. If you haven't done that, then you've got a tough/impossible road to hoe.

If you've got the grades/LR, try to get published. Also, develop close relationships with a professor or two that could go to bat for you with recommendations, etc... I believe the post-graduation application process begins summer 2011 (for fall 2012 clerkships)...but GTL Rev, TToN, twistedwrister, etc... could give you a better idea (all are/will be D Ct. and/or CoA clerks).

Also, the search function is really helpful.
