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.

Judge W. Pryor done for 2018-19 per letter from chambers. Judge Rosenbaum done per email.

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.

Anyone have experience with Jill Pryor application/interview? I see she opened up for one spot on OSCAR. Any help would be greatly appreciated. TY

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
