Though his standards are high -- top quarter of the class, law review -- SDTX Magistrate Judge Brian L. Owsley nonetheless may be your last minute ticket to a federal clerkship.
Fifth Circuit, Southern District of TexasAt least, I assume this is a regular federal clerkship that somehow went unfilled during the normal clerkship season; Judge Owsley isn't mentioned in the Texas District section of the Clerkship Notification blog. If I were a) qualified and b) graduating in May, I would apply for this position -- Owsley has an excellent resume and is a recent appointee, after having been previously employed by the DOJ, Human Rights Watch and the Southern Poverty Law Center.
