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.

I was wondering if you have any suggestions on how to respond. I am concerned about the possibility that if the economy does not improve, the firm might determine it over hired entering associates and if that happens, my offer could be rescinded depending on how I reply about practice groups.

1. The New York legal market is one of the most competitive markets in the country. Law school grades matter a great deal. Even those students at Top 20 law schools must achieve consistently strong grades to be considered by most big New York law firms. Many law firms will only consider candidates from Top 20 law schools who graduated in the top 25% of their class. For those students who are not attending Top 20 law schools, which are the great majority of law students, you will have more options available to you if your grades put you in the top 1 0% of your graduating class.
