Do these ever happen? Anybody in one that has been extended, perhaps due to the pandemic?

IIRC, Consuelo Callahan (9th Cir.) just hired someone for a two year. So it happens, but you're right, it's the first and only time I've seen it. Seems mad chill.

Lourie and Wallach on the Federal Circuit nearly exclusively offer two-year clerkships; Moore (also on Fed Cir) offers 1.5 year ones. Definitely seems like this is the exception to the rule though. Vast majority I've seen are one-year terms.

Judge Haynes on CA5 seems to have a two-year clerk too.

Raymond Gruender on the 8th Circuit and Agee on the 4th also do 2 year clerkships.

Yup, my understanding is that Haynes does a mix of one- and two- year clerkships, and Dennis on CA5 does two-year clerkships

Bibas on CA3 also has one. No idea on how it is regarded compared to the one year slots.

I don't believe he has a 2 year position anymore.

Gruender (CA8) has a mix of two- and one-year clerks.

Judge Baldock on the Tenth Circuit also has a 2-year clerkship.
