They go there after already having a 2L biglaw internship and offer but defer a year or two to clerk, or don’t have an offer yet because they interned at an agency or some other public service knowing full well that they will be getting snatched up before the end of their clerkship. It’s extremely calculated, and anyone who can land a SDNY clerkship could land an offer at any of the top firms in the country.

Maybe other “lesser” clerkships in flyover states are options for those who strike out but I wouldn’t plan on nabbing NY or CA just to keep busy while job hunting.

Yeah, I didn’t say this in so many words but I absolutely agree.

There are always people who strike out who do get clerkships for the interim, because biglaw and clerkship hiring are pretty different, but it’s not easy either and it’s not going to be SDNY.
