Second Circuit Staff Attorney Positions 2018

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Aug 08, 2017 11:03 am

Has anyone heard anything after yet submitting an application for a staff attorney position with the second circuit? Does anyone know what the timeline is to hear back or receive an interview or what the process is like?

Congrats. Did you apply on Oscar or do you go to one of the NY schools they visit to recruit people?

Has anyone heard anything? Does anyone know when they anticipate making decisions?

I had my first and second round and my references told me that they've been contacted.

Going by the previous thread, 2015 offers were made around mid December.

I think clerking is more competitive. But idk. Even though my references have been called, I've heard that there are still a lot of people in consideration.

IMO, not even close to clerking at the edny. If one of you is qualified to clerk at edny, then damn I have little to no chance.

I'll check in on December 15th. Which also happens to be the day of my last exam.

FWIW, when I was at the SAO, a few people came from EDNY to go there or vice versa, although probably skewed toward magistrate, C. Islip, and less grades-conscious judges.

Welp, then I likely don't have a chance either if I'm competing with people coming from EDNY clerkships... I was thinking I might check in the week before Christmas but I'm not feeling very hopeful.
