Thank you for this info! Do you know how many post-bars SD is looking for? Also, do you have any insight into what the interview for post-bar positions is like?
No problem. I'm not sure how many they are looking for this year, they usually hire 15-20. In past years, 3/4 of the clerks were current/past interns and the rest were out of state students. I have heard that they have reserved a certain number of slots specifically for out of state law students for this round.
Three rounds of interviews: first round: not certain because interns bypass, probably general screener, second round: come of up with defense and litigation strategy for a case, third round: you basically have it (tell us about yourself)
Thank you again! Sorry to keep asking Qs, but do you know how successful post bars are in obtaining attorney positions in SD? 15-20 post bars is quite a lot for SD.[/quote]
It depends on how many openings are available, but as long as they pass the CA bar, they are usually pretty successful. There are a decent amount of attorneys retiring this year so I believe there will be more openings for attorney positions than in the past years.
