I'm a second semester 2L looking to protect my GPA and have a relaxing second half of law school. I've looked at my classes for this semester and I'm considering taking a few classes which are mandatory pass/fail, taking another class that I've always planned to use one of my optional pass/fail's on, and taking a class outside the law school (which does not count toward my law school GPA), leaving me with only one graded law class. All of these classes are classes I am interested in and want to take - I am not doing this solely for the pass/fail's. At this point, I am concerned about clerkships. To people's knowledge or in their experience, would judges care about a bunch of classes that do not count towards the law school GPA?

so personal preferences?
If so it might help to find others who have applied and/or served under that specific judge.
