Choosing a recommender

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Jan 27, 2014 6:10 pm

I'm applying to a post grad DA's office that requires 1 letter of rec. and I'm trying to decide who to ask. A federal district ct. judge that I clerked for last semester, but didn't do any crim work for, or a professor who I had for crim and crim pro, I participated in both and got A's in both but I wouldn't say he knows me well. Does a letter from a judge always trump professor, or in this case would a letter from a professor be better?
