If you're a 3L, then the last year of law school can seem like a waste of time ... that is, unless you are applying for a clerkship. Then, it feels like you never have enough time. Take it from someone who spent weekends printing out cover letters and resumes, and sending them to district and circuit courts from New York to Guam.
I did get a clerkship, and it was the best legal job I've ever had (sorry FindLaw -- you're a close second). The experience you get clerking is irreplaceable, and probably the most insightful of your legal education, and later career.
Since Above the Law recently posted about clerkship application timing and deadlines, I was inspired to share some tips on how you can add clerkship to your resume.
