Clerkship Bonus Watch: Sidley Austin to $50K

Sidley Austin Brown Wood LLP logo Abovethelaw Above the Law legal blog.JPGSome good news, from a very happy tipster:

Sidley has just announced that they have raised clerkship bonuses to $50k! YES!

We’ve confirmed this raise with sources at the firm. So you can treat it as confirmed.
Update (2:55 PM): In response to some follow-up questions from us, the firm’s D.C. hiring partner, Joseph Guerra, explained:

“It applies to all domestic offices, and the bonus is the same for a one-year clerkship, a two-year clerkship or two one-year clerkships (provided one of the two isn’t a Supreme Court clerkship).”

Happy Friday!
