As a legal recruiter (and one whose husband is currently a 3L in law school) I often get asked by candidates and law school students my opinion as to how much a clerkship can “help” one’s resume. My response is always that if we are evaluating a clerkship solely on its potential marketability (and not on the experience itself, or the skills and knowledge to be gained from the opportunity), then you have to keep in mind 1) not all clerkships are of equal prestige and, 2) how marketable completing one can be depend on your career goals, both short and long-term.
