I had a release bearing fail and replaced the clutch, and annoyingly had
clutch judder when I didn't have it before, manoeuvring slipping the clutch.
I found that using revs slightly higher than otherwise I would have controlled
it, and lived with it.  Some 50k miles later it still does it a bit but not as
much as originally.  FWIW when I had oil contamination on a classis Mini there
was no judder, the clutch was just either in or out so I needed a lot of revs
to prevent stalling.

You don't say how old the clutch components are, doing a standard clutch
change would almost certainly change its behaviour, but only when you can't
live with it any longer.
