Used to clerk for a federal judge. Former judicial intern of judge just emailed me saying she’s interested in applying and would like to discuss my experience there? Am I allowed? I feel like I’ve never heard of people doing this. I can’t seem to think of a reason why I couldn’t speak to her but I feel like clerkships always have weird rules about them.

This is normal. Unless there’s a reason you think your Judge would be against it. I’m happy to speak with people who reach out to me about interviewing with my Judge. I don’t think the analysis changes just cause she used to be an intern.

Second this.

Ask your judge whether s/he would mind if you spoke with potential applicants about life in chambers. If your judge is ok with it then I don’t see an issue. My judge was old-school and wouldn’t have wanted us clerks talking to applicants outside the formal interview process.

I clerked for two different federal judges and I don’t think there’s any ethical reason you couldn’t now that you’re not currently clerking. You know your judge best and if you have a question if he/she’d be comfortable, you can ask. I’ve answered questions with potential applicants since I left my clerkships. And when I was applying, I reached out to former clerks that I found on LinkedIn. It’s also something I recommend to applicants. During your conversation you’ll still have the ethical limits to talking about specific cases or the precise inner mechanics of the chambers but you can talk broadly about your experience, what chambers was like, and your judge.

Thanks all!

I told a former legal intern I could write two recommendation letters for them and realized this morning that I’d missed the deadlines for submission on different days earlier this week. A close neighbor died after a long illness this week and it hit me harder than expected as I’ve been trying to process all of the losses so many people have suffered over the past year and a half. Should I let the former intern know or reach out to the companies and try to submit the letters late first?
