Delaware Supreme Court Clerkship

Post by Anonymous User » Sat Apr 18, 2020 10:40 pm

Prestige for clerking on Del. Supreme Ct? Any bump for clerking with Montgomery-Reeves who previously served as a Vice Chancellor on the Delaware Chancery Court?

Marginally less than the Chancery Court itself. I assume there's a disparity between the ex-Chancery justices and not. My understanding is that the ex-Chancellors are given almost exclusive reign over the Chancery cases that reach SCODe.

All in all, a solid credential to have. Possibly the best SSC clerkship behind NY and CA; or at least, close to it.

I don't think many (if any) people in the NY market know the difference between individual Delaware Supreme Court justices. I certainly wouldn't, and feel like I'm fairly (perhaps overly) attuned to the various clerkship gradations. Just look it as the Delaware Supreme Court, which is a notch below Delaware Chancery

not sure about the credential, but experience-wise the big corporate decisions are almost always going to come from CJ Seitz or Valihura now (neither are ex-chancellors).

What makes you think that? Obviously Seitz gets to assign opinions but why assume Valihura and not Montgomery-Reeves who just came from Chancery?

When I click on the Clerkship page for the Supreme Court it doesn't show anything about being full for 2021. Are you referring to the word doc that it makes you download?
