New Jersey Clerkships

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Nov 08, 2017 9:02 pm

How hard is it to obtain New Jersey clerkships? Like state appellate level. I am top 20% at a TT/TTT in NY and am wondering if it's doable.

I clerked in the App Div. my first year out of law school in 2014.

It's going to be hard because you'll be competing with all of the Rutgers kids, but definitely not impossible. Rutgers kinda owns NJ clerkships. I suppose, however, it depends on the judge to some extent. I clerked with people who were not from NJ and they did fairly well at TT/TTT schools. If you can show ties, and interview well, you'll have a shot. Just make sure you apply early (i.e. spring for 2019 clerkships--though some may be available for 2018).

Not hard with your grades.

Plus, there are still some judges hiring, and hiring FAST, for fall 2018. I know someone who applied, interviewed, and got an offer within 4 days in the last couple months.

Apply ASAP
