Inquiring after clerkship interview

Postby Anonymous User » Tue May 29, 2012 9:56 am

Interviewed w/ district court judge about four weeks ago, and I'm getting a little antsy. Given that I applied as an alum and that the judge interviewed candidates off-cycle, there's obviously less of a rush in the whole process. And I also know for a fact that the judge interviewed at least one other candidate last week, and it was my impression that the judge was going to wait to interview everyone schedule before making decisions. Is there any tactful or anonymous way to contact chambers and ask about where they are in the process?

Just call chambers and ask. Everyone will understand, especially if you have another offer you need to answer. If the inquiry prods the judge to decline you, then he/she was not going to hire you in the first place.
