1L Summer Bankruptcy Judge

Postby gbpackerbacker » Sat Jan 21, 2012 4:26 am

I'm considering interning for a federal bankruptcy judge for my 1L summer. How much different is it than working for regular federal judge? How much do employers care? I do have a genuine interest in bankruptcy law, however I don't want to close any doors for OCI.

I don't understand how that would close any doors for you, especially if you're interested in bankruptcy law. You're doing something legal, so it will work out. The whole point is to have something to talk about re: summer during 2L OCI.

If it's SDNY or Del., take it.

I worked for a podunk BK court. Employers responded rather positively, and I think it was a good experience.

DO IT! Bankruptcy courts are a lot more entertaining than people realize, and you might find yourself liking it.

What were the Del BK judge's term clerks like?

There are two career clerks and the rest are term clerks. Each judge has one clerk and there is also one additional clerk per floor (2 floors) I keep in touch with three of the clerks still. The clerks are smart, extremely knowledgable, and fairly laid back. Most of the term clerks have moved on - one became a prof, three went to firms. Nice people. Bankruptcy nerds - which I loved because I am one too.
