Meyer would be fantastic to clerk for, but he is very competitive. Worth a shot though, because he is outstanding, as a judge and a human.

I can say that as people / professors, Chatigny, Underhill, and Bolden all seem lovely, but I can't speak to their temperment in chambers. Chatigny and Underhill are obviously much older. People also seem to like Hall, although I've never interacted with her.

I would second this. I know of people who have clerked for, and loved, their experiences with Meyer, Underhill, and Bolden. And I've only heard positive things about the others. I don't think any of the D. Conn. judges are worrisome from a "mean/ill-tempered/difficult boss" perspective.

Agree with (or at least have no reason to disagree with) most of what has been said, particularly that Meyer and Underhill are beloved by their clerks. I will say that — take it with a big grain of salt — I got a bad vibe about the Judge Hall clerking experience from her clerks. Nothing direct or hugely concerning, but they didn’t seem that happy. And in truth you need to read between the lines to figure out the bad clerkships, usually, since people are very reluctant to talk negatively about their judge. Arterton seems to be the most demanding in New Haven in terms of hours (though perhaps slowing down as she ages, idk), but I didn’t get the sense that her clerks were unhappy.

Unfortunately, I have also heard similar things (well, a similar thing) about Judge Hall. A friend of mine clerked for her, and while he didn't share details, he made it sound like a very tough year.

Subsequent reviews on my law school's aggregator thing have been largely positive, so perhaps that was just a bad year.
