Show Notes

In this episode of Topping the Curve I interview Janae Staicer, a law clerk for a judge on the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. Janae also just finished a clerkship on the fifth circuit court of appeals. 

Throughout the episode Janae talks about steps to take prior to applying to clerkships, and ultimately securing a clerkship:

  • What makes a strong clerkship applicant and what judges look for
  • Tips and best application strategies 
  • Preparing for interviews and the actual interview process
  • Appellate clerkships vs. District court clerkships
  • Longevity of the clerkship process and the actual clerkship experience

Janae goes into depth about all of the above and more! A lot of things we discussed can be further explored in past episodes:
