NEW! Externship at the Mexican
This fall Chicago-Kent offered its first externship at the Mexican
Consulate. 3L and GLAPI staff member Christa Garcia is the first student
to participate in the externship and has so far had good things to say:
"The work at the consulate is very interesting. The issues we deal
with cover a very broad spectrum, including situations such as divorce,
education, criminal convictions, cultural awareness in the legal system,
and immigration/deportation issues. The perspective from the Mexican
Consualte is unique because we do not "represent" people but
instead support the attorneys who do, give advice, communicate with
the organizations, and sometimes intervene in the form of an amicus.
In the short time I have been there, I have learned a lot and I am confident
that the overall experience will be an extraordinary one."
If you are interested in doing an externship at the Mexican Consulate,
or have questions about the externship or other opportunities involving
Mexico or Latin America, please feel free to contact Christa Garcia
