The Honorable Wayne R. Andersen
United States District Court for the Northern District of
Illinois 1486 Everett McKinley Dirksen United States
Courthouse 219 South Dearborn Street
Chicago, IL 60604
Dear Judge Andersen:
I am a third-year law student at Loyola University Chicago School of Law and wish to apply
for a clerkship in your chambers following my graduation in May of 2010. After spending the
last few years in Chicago, I would like to remain in the area following graduation.
After reading your opinion in Alvarado v. Battaglia, I am confident that we would work
well together and that my writing style would complement your expectations and
preferences. I found your argument pertaining to the ability of a prisoner to state an
excessive force claim particularly interesting. I would enjoy discussing the case more
thoroughly with you at your convenience.
A resume, transcript, writing sample, and letters of recommendation from Professor Alice Perlin,
Professor James Carey, and Dean Michael Kaufman are enclosed. Should you require additional
information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
