Any Judges Still Hiring for 2018?

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Jun 12, 2018 8:11 pm

What is the best way to find out about last-minute clerkship openings for 2018? There are a few judges with 2018 openings on OSCAR, but is that it? Do judges post openings anywhere else?

Keep checking OSCAR. I’m applying for 2018 too and usually a new position is posted every week or two, although things have slowed down lately.

Do you have any friends who are currently clerking? I have one who gets periodic emails about openings, some of which are only posted on the district court’s website and not OSCAR.

I've gotten 5 interviews in the past couple of months for 2018 clerkships with solid but unremarkable stats. It's not over!

Have been particularly successful with senior judges who are not on OSCAR, for what it's worth (3/5). Many clerkship advisors keep a regularly updated list of different judges' hiring status. Failing that, they should have a list of all federal judges. It sucks, but call every single one.
