What kind of credentials are needed to get hired by Thapar?


The student he hired from my T10 was top 1%.

Wow. Was that for 2014? Did the student also have LR, e-board, published, or other factors (elite UG, bid deal recs, elite SA etc)?

Why is he so competitive?

My impression is that he only hires students who are otherwise in the running for feeder appellate clerkships. Of the three Thapar clerks I have known, all have gone on to feeder COA judges the following year.

I'm not sure how this one guy, sitting in Kentucky, got to the position where he could afford to be so competitive, and at such a young age. I've wondered the same thing myself. I think he must be close with many of the other young Bush appointees his age (e.g. Kethledge, Sutton) and is able to set his clerks up with those judges. I also think he must be very well-respected by other judges. Also, FYI: he was appointed to be the U.S. Attorney (not AUSA) for E.D. Ky. in his mid-30s. That's pretty insane.

Some or all of these factors are necessary, based on what I've seen.

I got an email from Judge Siler's chambers a few months back saying that he would not be interviewing until late July or early August.

He hired at least one person off plan. Not sure how many "on plan" spots he set aside.
