Q: I just finished my 2L year at a top 15 law school and will be spending the summer at a top law firm. I have substantial law school debt and am married with a child. I am considering applying for a federal judicial clerkship, but the economy has me worried. Should I get into Biglaw and start paying off my loans ASAP, or should I pursue the clerkship? My biggest fear is not being able to get a Biglaw job after clerking for a year if the economy tanks.
