All third year students who are interested in externing with the Office of the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois for the Spring 1999 Semester should pick up their applications from Professor Gross in Room 617. The primary goals of this externship are to provide the student with the greatest possible exposure to and participation in federal trial and appellate practice and to assist the office in handling its multitude of important cases. Completed applications must be received at the Office of the U.S. Attorney by Wednesday, September 9, 1998. The reason for the accelerated date is because each accepted extern must go through a security clearance, which takes several weeks.
To receive law school credit for this externship, should you be selected
by the U.S. Attorney's Office, you must also apply to the law school's
Advanced Externship Program. Professor Gross will explain those application
procedures to you when you pick up your application. The law school
externship applications will be available in early October.
