DC or Maryland state clerkship

Postby reddukie8 » Mon Jul 18, 2011 5:27 pm

Does anyone have any thoughts on the prestige/career options related to clerking on either the DC Court of Appeals (not to be confused with the DC Circuit) or the Maryland Court of Appeals? Thanks!

Off the top of my head, the only major difference I see between them in terms of career prospects, etc. is location. Non-art 3 clerkships (and at least some art 3 clerkships) tend to be much more valuable career wise if you plan to work in the same area you clerked, so the real question is can you stand to live in this hellhole of a swamp from which are nation is governed?

My guess is that the OP's answer is yes.
