P12363 clerked for edit

I see that your proposal for clerked for (P12363) was created. I was wondering if you have any idea of qualifiers that would be useful. I was thinking that since the judge could have been appointed to multiple courts, it would be useful to have start time/end time and a qualifier for employer or court. That would make it more clear. I'm thinking about judges clerked for like appellate or supreme court judges where they would have likely had clerks at all of the courts they were appointed to. -- William Graham (talk) 23:05, 29 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@William Graham: Honestly, I struggled with how to frame the property; some judicial systems have law clerks assigned to a particular court and they rotate under various judges. But I think qualifiers such as start time (P580), end time (P582), and court (P4884) should be included where known, especially because as you noted, the judges may have served under different courts. gobonobo + c 00:09, 30 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
