  1. "Federal District Court Law Clerk Sounds Off"

    Pros

    It is an excellent credential for career advancement, and the hours and workload are very reasonable. Having the opportunity to work for a federal judge, especially at the beginning of my legal, is a wonderful opportunity. Most importantly, the job opens doors in both the public and private sectors that would not otherwise be available to a young attorney.

    Cons

    The job pays a fraction of what law school peers will earn at big law firms. While the salary is obviously a drawback, you will be able to make some of this money back if you chose to go to big law after your clerkship with a nice fat signing bonus.

    Pros

    Great people, fantastic new building, and lots of interesting work. There is also a great cafeteria on the 7th floor that has tasty food. Couldn't have had a better summer.

    Cons

    There can be a little bit of bureaucracy. A lot of the people can be worried about their own job than they are about making things run smoother or more efficiently. Also, the building is not very green.
