Just starting 1-year term clerkship. I have no idea how/where to begin looking. I would like to take a look at biglaw or even midlaw. Is this realistic? Maybe with a vaccine in 6 months?

I think you will be fine if you had a biglaw summer before all of this. If not, may be more tough than normal.

Honestly, I can't really speculate. Every situation is very different. I'd say that your best bet is just having your judge call in the favors. I wouldn't be shy. My judge called in a ton of favors in an attempt to get me to stay in the city in which I clerked.

Besides that, apply and hope for the best?
