Any word on which Second Circuit judges are known for being especially good - or not good - bosses?

OSCAR suggests that Chin and Livingston are, as well as some of the Connecticut judges (Walker in New Haven, Droney in Hartford).

I don't have any firsthand knowledge of this. I know that Livingston has interviewed off-plan in the past and wouldn't be surprised if she has begun interviewing for 2014. A Droney clerk I spoke to a few weeks ago said that he was not planning to follow the plan to the letter, but was planning to conduct interviews in June and July--so it's possible he's begun by now, but he likely hasn't ended. My guess is that Chin will follow the plan, perhaps as modified by the SDNY judges (i.e., will accept applications early but not interview until June 28). I don't know anything about Judge Walker.

I know that several judges have already hired for 2014-15 on the 2d Circuit, including one of the ones you just mentioned.

Not to be pedantic, but I think that's the point--*most* 2d Cir. judges have hired for '14. In fact, most are full.

If any of the above judges have interviewed and hired 2Ls (rising 3Ls) for '14, that information seems like it would help the prior poster who asked.

Has been hiring. Don't know if they're done, but they've definitely hired some for 2014-15.

Livingston has hired at least one, probably more.

Curious about these judges as well. I know Newman's clerkship is peculiar in that clerks work remotely; not sure how or if that factor plays into his timing for hiring.
