My former co-clerk Richard Morrison has been confirmed as a Judge on the United States Tax Court. Rich has held a variety of senior posts in the DOJ Tax Division over the past several years.
Our third co-clerk for Judge Smith on the 5th Circuit is now a movie screen writer in Hollywood. You really can do anything with a law degree. And with a clerkship with Judge Smith you can be anything--a professor, judge, or movie writer. Anything, it appears, except a career practicing lawyer.
