Yes, an AIII clerkship is an AIII clerkship. ATL is trying hard to smear the recent appointees, but the prestige of an AIII will always outweigh the political leanings of a given AIII judge. At least for law-firm hiring purposes. It is a prestige-driven business.

I read on some law blogs, such as ATL, that some employers might look a little more closely at which judge you clerked for when reviewing applications. Because there have been some judges, especially recently, who are supposedly inexperienced, political hacks, etc.

Do you think employers in the future would scrutinize the judge’s pedigree more closely?

Have any of you already seen this happening?

Maybe too early to say, but I am curious.
