I think it's pretty safe to assume that there are hundreds of apps for all judges everywhere.

bumping this thread & checking in. Any pointers/advice from previous 8th Cir. applicants? I know it's probably early, but when do most 8th Cir. judges start moving on applications for the 2015 term? Have any started interviewing?

Jesus.


I'm near the top of the class at the best school in the area (take that however you will) and had 3 people working on him for me. Nothing. It's just rough out there if you aren't top 10% at HYS.


And even then it's no cakewalk. It's insanely rough.

I believe Judge Murphy has one spot remaining for 2015-16.

Murphy is done for 2015-16, and has hired at least one for 2016-17, still has some openings for 2016-17 (as of one week ago)
