For example, say I didn't want to return to my 2L summer firm and had two clerkships like up for after graduation. Could I do Clerkship 1 from June to June and then SA from June to August and then Clerkship 2 from August to August?
Has anyone done this before?
Really, you just need to talk to the judges to find out their schedules. The judges I've worked for had very clear preferences about when I started and going from June to June would not have worked for them. But I'm sure that's not universal - you just need to find out what your judges want.
(Edited to add: assuming a firm is willing to hire a law school grad as an SA. I don't see why they wouldn't, but you'd have to find that out, too. I know some government employers *can't* hire law school grads for student positions, but that's probably very different in the private sector.)
