As a general matter, they rarely hire laterals. In recent years, they've hired laterals from firms and from clerkships, but generally its like 1-2 people a year. Its extremely difficult to get hired there as a lateral.

are you really considered a 'lateral' coming off a clerkship when you have no substantial practice experience elsewhere?
