On Tuesday, September 29, 1998 at 12:00 p.m. in Room 270, there will be a meeting for all students who are interested in externing for a federal appellate, district, or bankruptcy judge or magistrate for the Spring 1999 Semester. Professor Vivien Gross will describe the kinds of experiences a judicial extern will have in the course of a semester, as well as how to apply. If you are interested in a judicial externship but are unable to attend the meeting, please see Professor Gross in Room 617.
A judicial externship enables a student to become involved in particular legal problems through research and writing, and to contribute in the resolution of those legal problems. Depending upon the judge, an extern may have the opportunity to observe the day-to-day routine of a judge and discuss with the judge and the judge's law clerk those legal problems which attorneys face in their profession, and the specific problems which attorneys confront in their courtroom. Take advantage of this prestigious learning opportunity while enhancing your marketability in the legal world!
The applications for Spring 1999 Judicial Externships will be available both in the Law Offices Reception Area (Room 600) and in the Career Services Offices as of Monday, September 28th.
Completed applications should be submitted to Ms. Carole Ross, Secretary to Professor Gross, Room 612, Law Offices, by Tuesday, October 13, 1998 at 5:00 p.m.
