Last Wednesday I hosted one of my favorite annual events, the Judicial Clerkship Program. I love to have TLS alumni on campus who are current or former judicial law clerks because they always give such great advice about hiring, applications, and the day-to-day life of a judge's clerk. This year, I had a current clerk from our home federal court, the Eastern District of Louisiana, as well as two local firm practitioners who clerked previously, one with our neighbors to the North, the Western District of Louisiana, and the other in the far-off (but very cool-sounding) island of Guam. All three had advice about how to stand out in the application process, and all resoundingly agreed that working as a law clerk was the best job they'd ever had. One of the alums mentioned that he would go back to clerk in a heart-beat if he could, and the current clerk said he was already feeling sad about leaving the court this summer. With all of the emphasis Tulane Law places of post-graduate clerkships (Class of 2011 included 21 state and federal law clerks), it's nice to have our alums echo my sentiments about the value and amazing experience that is clerking. I'll be meeting with our Class of 2013 students interested in pursuing clerkships on April 2, and I'm already excited to see where they will go.
