I just feel like a judicial internship will at least give me experience doing the kind of work lawyers do, while at a federal agency there's a danger of not getting the right kind of legal experience.
Completely disagree. A 2L summer judicial internship is a terrible idea. You get little out of it in the way of networking, real world experience, or long term employment options. Yes it is better than nothing, but better options are still out there. A federal government job is a far better option.
