Anyone know anything about Rosenbaum? The fact that she goes out of her way to say how hard the work is seems like a bit of a red flag

Super smart, but she will work you hard. I don't think she's as bad as a Kozinski or Posner, but her clerks are routinely working until 11:00 PM a lot of nights.

Working until 11 PM? That sounds miserable. How does that happen?

My understanding through hearsay is that she does not share in the bench memo pool. But there's probably other reasons as well.

There's no shared bench memos in the 11th. It also has the highest caseload, per-capita in the country- you'll work pretty hard for most of the judges there. Working till 11pm on a daily basis seems unusual, but clerks for both Judges Pryor, E. Carnes, and Martin also work long(ish) hours.

Has anyone received a rejection letter from Ed Carnes? I know 4/5 slots are filled, I was just wondering whether he has already informed applicants that they were not selected. In the alternative, is it customary for him to do so? If anyone knows that'd be awesome.

You'll usually be contacted by Carnes' assistant if he's interested in you, prior to the interview via phone or email. If you haven't been contacted, chances are you're rejected.

As I understand it, a Posner clerkship is not particularly burdensome (Posner writes his own opinions). Certainly should not be included in the same breath as a Kozinski clerkship in terms of workload/hours.

Anyone have specifics or estimates about how hard Pryor and Carnes clerks work? I've heard mixed things

Wilson is interviewing and hiring on rolling basis. I believe (but am not sure) that 3/4 slots have been filled for 2018-19.

Where'd you hear that about Judge Wilson? I heard from one of his current clerks that he doesn't hire until summer or early fall

Can confirm he's hiring and interviewing (possibly done interviewing at this point) for 2018 but that's all I can say.
