Q: I am currently working as a law clerk for a federal district court judge. Prior to clerking, I worked as a litigation associate for one year in a Biglaw firm in New York City.

I am interested in remaining in the state where I am clerking and have spoken to several prospective headhunters in my new state. However, I have heard from other clerks that many law firms have a policy of not accepting law clerks submitted by headhunters.
