Judicial Clerkships

For law students, a judicial clerkship is the Holy Grail. A recently redesigned Web site, Judicial Clerkships.com, aims to help law students “successfully navigate the maze of courts and clerkship opportunities.” Thanks to this site, I now know that the federal judiciary maintains a site exclusively for law clerks, the Federal Law Clerk Information System. Despite some useful links and bits of information, the site seems primarily devoted to marketing the book “Behind the Bench: The Guide to Judicial Clerkships,” written by Debra Strauss, who maintains the site.
