I was selected for my clerkship in April 2017, after having applied in January of that year and interviewing in February. It is my understanding that this was a somewhat later time frame than many of my fellow clerks. The steps were essentially searching and finding judge's who were still searching for a law clerk. Mailing my resume, cover letter and writing samples to them. I then waited to be contacted and prepared myself for the interview process. After that it was pretty much just waiting and paperwork/ orientation and training once I had been selected.

The most stressful part of being a judicial law clerk is the sheer gravity or magnitude of the decisions in which you are assisting your judge with. These are decisions that have grave implications on the lives of defendants and their families, as well as crime victims. That feeling of responsibility can be overwhelming, but it tends to make me be as thorough as possible to make sure that I'm giving the judge all the research he needs to make sure that he's rendering the right decision.
