A few thoughts:
Law professors continue to flow from a few justices. Only five law professors among the bunch, and they're spread out a bit more than previous years.
Plenty of government service. There were 15 involvement in government, and not all federal--service in Missouri, California, and San Francisco peppered the resumes of this class.
A small drop in law firms. There were 14 in law firms, down from 19 last year--and those were all partners. This year's includes several counsel & of counsel positions.
All in all, the sample size is consistently too small to draw much comparison from class to class or across classes. But it's worth looking back over the years to see if 10-year retrospectives have changed terribly much!
Update: I mixed up an OT 2008 Ginsburg clerk with an OT 2007 clerk; that has been corrected!
