The below chart was shamelessly taken from I Seek Validation Through Clerkship Placement (a painfully accurate title).

As you can see, the info on some of the BigTex and BigLaw with Texas satellites is a bit threadbare, so please comment if you can fill in any of the blanks.

The chart below indicates the clerkship salary bonus that the Vault 100 (2008 ) firms offer federal COA clerks. Some notes:
-The chart uses the highest number for an office if different offices give different amounts.
-The chart uses only the official number of the firm, not the number that some may negotiate or that some clerks may receive for working for a particular judge or circuit.
-The second number indicates what, if anything, a two-year clerk receives (or “cbc” if case-by-case).
-Blanks are unknown data.
-All numbers are in thousands of dollars.
