Clerkship Interviews

Calling The Chambers

You were probably told that it is almost never okay to call the chambers. It is true, with one exception: If you live in a different city and plan to be in the same geographical area as the judge, do not hesitate to call the chambers and ask whether he or she would be willing to interview you while you are there. One of the reasons judges interview so few applicants is the cost of travel. So if you are going to be in the area anyway, call the judges in that area. You are likely to be turned down most of the time, but it only takes one interview to get an offer! Just remember, your phone call will be received better if you are polite, apologetic, and brief.
