Interview with a district judge. I'm not quite sure how to answer the "why do i want to be in district court" questions. I honestly just did a mass mailing.

I want to practice in this city. I want to practice in this district. I want to practice in this state. It offers a chance to see lots of good and bad lawyers in lots of areas of law. I want to work with X judge because of X reason. I like how this court focuses on writing/focuses on preparing trials/has a good mix. X lawyer told me how great the people here are.
