If you are interested in a judicial clerkship, you need to read Judicial Clerkships: A Practical Guide by three former judicial clerks, Mary Dunnewold, Beth Honetschlager, and Brenda Tofte. There is a complete discussion about the issues that confront applicants for judicial clerkships like why you should become a judicial clerk, what kids of clerkships are available, who you will be working with, and exactly what a clerk does. There are pointers on how to apply, what the interview is like, and what to do if you don't get chosen. If you are fortunate enough to get a job clerking, the authors describe how to draft memoranda, jury instructions, orders, findings of fact and conclusions of law, letters to counsel and opinions.
Do you know what an "elbow clerk" or a "bench memo" is? This is the book that will help you find out and maybe put you on the path to that job as a judicial clerk.
