Anthony M. DiLeo and Judge Alvin B. Rubin, Law Clerk Handbook:  A Handbook for Federal District and Appellate Court Law Clerks (Federal Judicial Center 1977)

This book of approximately 400 pages was commissioned by the Federal Judicial Center, the administrative organization that operates the federal courts.  The Handbook was distributed by the Federal Judicial Center to all federal appellate and district judges and their law clerks.  It has been cited in reported federal court proceedings (and quoted by Judge Richard A. Posner in The Federal Courts: Crisis and Reform, 1985, Harvard University Press "The Rise of the Law Clerk"). In 1989, the Handbook was updated by Judge Rubin and Laura B. Bartell, Esq., and it was later combined with the Handbook for Federal Judges' Secretaries into Chambers Handbook for Judges' Law Clerks and Secretaries.
