  • Judicial Clerkships | SLU LAW
    help break the ice in an interview Unconventional talents interests or experience can make you stand out even if they have nothing to do directly with the practice of law For example the fact that you worked your way through school as a stand up comic or coached a little league team may help separate you from the crowd In addition judges will be looking for evidence of solid research and writing skills as well as people skills Emphasize these areas in your applications materials Have Mary Pat McInnis in the Office of Career Services review your application materials before sending them out Her input will be very useful Résumé Your résumé should be as strong as possible If your qualifications improve after you send your résumé to the judge e g you are appointed to the Law Review Editorial Board be sure to send an updated resume highlighting your latest accomplishments Cover Letter Customize your cover letter to the particular judge to whom you are applying Judges are very interested in knowing whether you sincerely want to work for them or if they are just one employer on a long list If you have properly researched the judge before applying you can specifically reference her work in your cover letter You may also consider addressing your interest in that specific court and or the specific issue s the court judge addresses This sends the judge the message that you are interested in working specifically for her Remember your cover letter is a writing sample in itself It must be polished concise customized and engaging Letters of Recommendation Because judges may receive dozens or hundreds of applications they use letters of recommendation to distinguish among the many qualified candidates Most trial court judges require two letters of recommendation and most appellate judges prefer three Confirm the required number of recommendations with the judge you are submitting your application At least one of these letters should be from a law school professor When deciding who on the faculty you should ask to write your letter of recommendation remember that the best letters of recommendation come from professors who can speak from personal knowledge of you and your work Start during your first year to develop relationships with your professors This will ensure that there are one or two faculty members who know you well enough to write personalized letters of recommendation If there is a particular professor you would like to have write your letter of recommendation become actively involved with the professor s research try to serve as his or her faculty fellow enroll in a directed research project with him or her or do a volunteer project with the professor This will enable the professor to become acquainted with you and your work and will aid him or her in writing a glowing recommendation for you Faculty members know that students will be asking for recommendations Do not hesitate to ask However give them plenty of time at least one month to prepare the letters If the professor writing your letter of recommendation offers to let you see the letter read through it to confirm that it is an accurate portrayal of your character and abilities If it is not and you have multiple letters to choose from use the letters that present you in the best light Each faculty member is different regarding the number of letters they will send Ask each professor how many letters it is appropriate to request of them Most professors have no problem with 20 30 letters since they tend to use the same letter for each judge However to maintain good will the more letters you request the more you should try to lessen the workload for the professor provide addressed envelopes so the professor doesn t have to worry about it You may also consider requesting a letter of recommendation from an attorney who is familiar with your work Do not include recommendations from attorneys for whom you worked before you entered law school Again provide adequate notice to the attorney so that he may have sufficient time to complete the recommendation letter Letters of recommendation can either be sent separately from your application packet or sealed and included with the other application materials We recommend that you include sealed letters of recommendation in your application packet This will decrease the possibility that your letters of recommendation become misfiled Writing Sample Your writing sample must reflect your very best efforts The best writing sample is one that a judge is likely to start and finish It is worth a call to the judge s chambers for guidance regarding what length writing sample is appropriate Believe it or not shorter is usually better If you have several writing samples from which to choose select one that will appeal to the judge For example a federal judge would be more interested in a federal law topic than a state law topic Caution If you choose a topic that the judge has rendered a decision about make sure you cite and apply the law correctly Be sure the sample illustrates your analytical abilities stay away from mere recitation of facts If possible the best sample is one that shows your ability to view a case from all perspectives A research memo rather than a persuasive memo is best Moot court briefs or persuasive motions are not as effective they are too technical and are usually presenting only one side of an issue Strategies for Obtaining Clerkships This section discusses some strategies you can use to increase your chance of obtaining a clerkship Start Early The earlier you decide to pursue a clerkship the more time you have to become acquainted with the faculty obtain valuable work experience and prepare your application materials Additionally if you wait too long to apply you may find that the most desirable judicial clerk ships have been filled Grades and Co curricular Activity Academic honors and achievements are some
