Thank you letters to judges

Hi all,

Should you send an official thank you letter after accepting an offer from a judge? Don't know what the common TLS wisdom is. Please let me know.

Would you for any other job offer? This seems weird. Especially if you already thanked her by phone.

No. Nor should you send an unofficial thank you letter.

You don't have to. If it would make you feel better to do this, a letter confirming your acceptance and (briefly) expressing your appreciation for the opportunity will not be viewed as weird.
