    I have been working at State of Delaware full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    As a law clerk, your job duties are very much tied to your specific judge. I have a great working relationship with my judge. This fact allows for much flexibility. The work load is manageable and interesting.

    Cons

    Contract is year-to-year, which can be stressful if you are looking to make a career out of clerking. Delaware does not have "career clerks" like the federal system.
