If a job posting requires 2-4 years of litigation experience, and I have 2 years of clerkship, 1.5 years doing litigation in private practice, do I meet the requirements? If not, should I just apply anyway?

Always just apply.

The job I just got required 3 years of experience and I had none. Read the job description and see which of your skills are transferable to that job. That's how you pitch yourself.

Yes

Apply anyways.

Yes. If clerking counts as years of litigation experience for a firm (i.e., you’re a 3-4 yr associate), then it should also apply for that job

like

Apply anyway. One thing you can pitch is that since you are coming in somewhat fresh, you are teachable and can learn how to do things the right way. They don’t have to break any potentially “bad” habits that you may have picked up.

Absolutely apply. I applied for jobs that wanted 2-4 years and I have 1.5 years of clerkship and 1 year of litigation and firms still interviewed/considered me.
