From Private Practice to Clerking

Post and share anonymous comments regarding making the transition from private practice to clerking.

    Any advice for letters of recommendations for those of us who have been in private practice for awhile? I was going to use a combination of private practice recommendations and a law professor.

  2. Many judges want to see a professional recommendation. I used a two professors and a partner for whom I've worked, but I can't say yet whether or not the strategy was successful.

  3. I only used private practice recommendations as the ones from law school seemed completely inappropriate to me. I spoke with the clerk for one of the judges to ask, and her advice was that they would rather have current references. We'll see.
