SHould I do a clinic in my practice area or a government internship in my practice area?

Which one is more valuable?

I have a summer associate position at a NLJ250 this summer but I am very interested in trying to "upgrade" at a 3L oci this fall.

I think this likely depends on the clinic program at your school and how in depth the specific clinic gets. I would be more inclined towards the internship, since it will give you experience in the field while also making connections and networking with people in the area you want.
