I'm in a district that is as massive (roughly) as SDNY and my judge isn't in chambers on Fridays. Clerks are obviously expected to be in, but no one is going to mind if you take off at 3 p.m. or so to catch a flight every once in a while.

But this is very judge-specific. My judge schedules all criminal proceedings (other than trials) for Fridays, so Friday is the one weekday we clerks cannot miss.

This is generally the day of the week that the judge calendars all of his civil motions hearing on, and may or may not also include all of his scheduling conferences and any pretrial conferences. Its often on Mondays. I think "law and motion calendar" is a term of art from (California) state court that has crept into the federal judiciary.
