What year are you interested in? DDC has already hired lots of people for 2014-15.

Not OP, but I'm interested in whether there's been movement for 2015-16.

Boasberg has been interviewing since at least late February for 2015-'16 (I know several 2Ls at my HYS school who have interviewed), but I don't know if he has extended any offers.

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson (newly confirmed) is already full for 2014.

Anyone know whether the Boasberg interviews tie to Tatel COA clerkships? They are reported to have a working relationship to fulfill Tatel's preference that COA clerks have DCt experience.

As far as I know, this partnership is pretty limited, since Boasberg prefers that his clerks have COA experience. He's hired at least two of three for '15, both with prior COA clerkships.

I know of two Boasberg clerks-to-be (admittedly small sample size), neither with a Tatel connection. One will have clerked for COA (not D.C. Cir.) and one will have worked for a year.

That was me. I don't really have any other details. I mailed application materials to her immediately after she was confirmed, and I received a letter this week saying that she has already finished her hiring for the 2013 and 2014 terms.

Judge Jackson had been soliciting clerkship apps on the low for at least three months before confirmation. It looks like she made decisions almost immediately after her confirmation based on those prior applications. Source: professors and career services at my school put the word out over the last few months.

Thanks to both posters. PP, was there an e-mail address associated with the solicitation or was the judge asking for paper apps? (I have a 2014 COA clerkship and am looking to clerk on DDC in 2015.) Feel free to PM.

Supposed to be a great boss; I think he primarily hires from HY and from the top of the class at DC-area schools. Requires two years of work experience but often hires two years out (i.e., hired one 3L in Sept. 2012 at my HY school for a 2015 clerkship).

Have any D.D.C. judges started quietly looking for 2015 apps? Not talking about the ones that have explicitly said so on OSCAR, but ones like Judge Jackson, for example.

Note that he's been recently nominated to DC Circuit so I doubt there'll be any movement for hiring DDC clerks until he's either confirmed or stalls out.

Anyone know about John Bates hiring practice? (i.e. what schools are his clerks from)

I ask because he seems like an DDC outlier with a jd from maryland, so I didn't know whether he likes local residents or is the typical DDC judge and hires from t14

He hired one guy from my HYS for his third clerkship in 2015 (following Griffith and JGR).

Wait, just to be clear--JGR meaning "John G. Roberts"? There's a HYS 3L clerking on the D.C. Circuit, then the Supreme Court, and *then* D.D.C.?
