Law students looking to apply for federal clerkships will want to be aware of the library’s subscription to the Almanac of the Federal Judiciary.  Now available electronically, the Almanac provides biographical information for all federal judges, as well as information about notable rulings and evaluations from lawyers.  Among other things, lawyer evaluations focus on the judge’s legal ability, judicial demeanor, how active they are at oral argument, whether they encourage settlement, and the quality of their written opinions.
