politics: what President was he/she appointed by

schools: typically look at schools of state where judge sits plus smattering of T14

types of cases: habe, social security, etc... ya know, federal stuff - or, use westlaw/lexis to look at their previous cases

how nice they are: who cares its a clerkship and sticks with you on your little firm bio thing forever

if state court clerkship answers change
