District Court in 2015 help chances for 2014 circuit?

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Apr 10, 2013 8:42 pm

I have a district court clerkship for 2015-16. Its a judge I like and in a city I want to be in. But, I'd still like to see if I can get a 2014-15 circuit court clerkship.

Is it worth sending out letters to circuit court judges I have already applied to and let them know I have a district court clerkship?

Of course, I will put this on my resume for future applications to circuit courts, but I was wondering if there is anything I can do to use this new position to help out my pending applications.

TLS advice?

Wouldn't hurt.

Can also talk to the judge and see if (s)he knows and would be willing to talk to any circuit judges for you
