I am clerking for a 10th Circuit judge with a full case load who hires three law clerks and one secretary, thus saving the taxpayers some money.


1) I note that Chicago Law has the most Supreme Court clerks/capita. Take that, bogus USNWR ratings!

2) In addition to your headache, not all judges go with the 4 clerk/1 secretary or 3 clerk/2 secretary regime. Judges Easterbrook and Posner each only use two clerks and (I think) 1 secretary, saving the taxpayers a bit of money, but reducing their "feeder" reputation. The upside was that we didn't have to share our offices like some of the other Seventh Circuit clerks.
