It is an outstanding clerkship. You probably could not find a better one.
What makes it so outstanding?
Different anon. I think to answer the original question, I agree that it would look odd to go COA-->SSC-->COA Feeder, but the year spent doing the Justice Lee clerkship would likely be a pretty good one. Justice Lee's a smart, thoughtful judge who cares about his clerks. He's conservative, but the kind of conservative that seems genuinely committed to textualism as opposed to furthering a Republican agenda. The workload at the UT SSC is also somewhat varied but still kind of low; I don't think you'll be working more than 40-hour weeks. And, though it has its drawbacks, Salt Lake is a pretty fun place to live for a year.

As someone who took the HLS/UC/BYU class that Lee teaches, he's awesome. Very smart, very welcoming. Definitely conservative, but I got the sense that he was always open to different views and was at least consistent in his conservatism. As a liberal, I'd love to clerk for Lee.

I also took this class (and I'm also liberal) and I really liked Lee. He seemed like a very decent man and he's clearly very bright.

I'm the anon who clerked for him.

He's a thoughtful, extremely smart, and hard-working judge who cares a lot about his clerks and mentoring. It was a very good year.

Justice Devine on SCOTX still has not made all offers for 2021. Not sure if others are still missing but they are likely done by now.
