Assuming profs are all equal, is there any way to rank the following courses in terms of what a judge might want to see Fall 2L: Crim Pro, Admin Law, Con Law II, Fed Jur, Evidence? Can take any 2 or possibly 3 depending on the scheduling specifics.

All those classes are fine. If you're looking for a district court clerkship, Evidence would probably be the most useful. Con Law II would probably be the least useful, though it depends on the course content. If the prof spends a lot of time on section 1983/constitutional torts stuff, that'll come in handy.


Thanks. I don't think he does, but my summer job involves working with a fair number of 1983 claims so hopefully that will help at least a bit.
