Texas appellate lawyer Dylan Drummond, an associate with Kane Russell Coleman & Logan, PC in Houston, tells us that the Clerkship Notification Blog (CNB) is now active for the 2009-2010 hiring season. Drummond is editor-in-chief of the blog, which was founded in 2005 by Yale alumna and currrent Kirkland Ellis attorney Katherine McDaniel as a clearinghouse for clerkship information. Anyone can post messages regarding which judges around the country are seeking or have hired clerks.

Clerkship information is broken down by court type and grouped by state or territory. The blog also includes advice on transitioning from private practice to clerking and information on post-clerkship career options.

Another Texas lawyer, Mani Walia, now a clerk for the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, is managing editor of the CNB.
