What are you assemblying? Normally any way you can bring a well fitted miter together will work. I've put together boxes with mitered corners and just used masking tape to hold the joint together until the glue is dry. Sometimes you can just put a brad or two in the joint to hold it together. A lot depends on how well the joint is and if it is structural or not.
