ALJ Clerkship during biglaw (jr. assoc.) - yea or nay?

Post by Anonymous User » Tue Apr 17, 2018 10:16 pm

I posted this in the clerkships thread, only to realize it may be more suitable here given that my concern is really, "Will this be good in the long term for a big law trajectory."

I'm thinking about taking an ALJ clerkship that is directly related to the subj. matter of my work in biglaw. The skills would be directly transferable. Is there anything about ALJ clerkships that are frowned upon in biglaw? I want to know if this will hurt me down the road if I want to stay in biglaw. Thanks!
