Book Description: 'To clerk or not to clerk?' Although the answer should be 'clerk', the reality is that most students won't apply for a clerkship. The most common reason why students don't apply is a lack of knowledge about what it takes to get a clerkship or how beneficial it will be to their careers. With The Guide to Judicial Clerkships Debra M. Strauss demystifies the clerkship process. Drawing from the experiences of clerks and judges, she explains all aspects of clerkships — what clerkships are, what kind of work clerks do, why you should apply, how to find and apply for the type of clerkship that would be right for you, how to give a strong interview, and why clerkships give you stellar credentials that prospective employers will actively seek out. The Guide to Judicial Clerkships contains everything that you need to make the right choice — clerk!
