I know this isn't exactly the right place to be asking this question but I figure it's the best place to ask to get a knowledgable response. It's never occurred to me that there's a possibility that I won't be working at a law firm in bankruptcy for the rest of my life following my clerkship until today. What are common exit options open to bankruptcy attorneys?

What are the exit options for a bk clerk coming from the SDTX in the McAllen/Brownsville area. T50 school, Top 20% grades, big law SA. Would exiting to a big law restructuring group in Houston be a likely outcome?

You have solid stats so that would help. Problem is you would get little c. 11 experience, and probably zero large c. 11 experience, as those cases are all before the Houston judges.

Jones and Isgur are the only SDTX bankruptcy judges that get any decent sized chapter 11s per a SDTX order, so it will be difficult to go to Biglaw. Look at where your judge's former clerks have gone.
