Interested in Tax Law, Corporate Tax, Estate Planning, Trust Law?  An Externship in Tax, Corporate Tax and Business Law may be for you! 

What is the Tax, Corporate Tax and Business Law Externship Program? 

The externship will be a 3-credit hour pass/fail program where each extern will devote approximately 12 hours per week to the program.*  The program will be supervised by Processor Nancy R. Livingston.  The majority of hours will be spent at the extern's designated placement.  An extern will also be expected to meet with Professor Livingston on an individual basis or with the extern group as a whole on a number of occasions  during the semester. 

In order to be eligible to participate in the Tax, Corporate Tax and Business Law Externship Program, a student must meet the following prerequisites: 

              1.  First, a student must be in the top 25 percent of his or her class at the time of  application or have permission from Professor Livingston.  Permission will be based on the following factors: cumulative GPA, current GPA, law school courses taken, professor recommendation(s) and appropriate placement; 

              2. A student must have taken and successfully completed  Personal Income Tax by the time of application; and 

              3.  By the date the placement commences, a student must have taken and successfully completed, or be currently enrolled in, at least three of the following other courses: Bankruptcy, Business Organizations, Business Planning, Commercial Law I: Sales and Secured Transactions, Commercial Law II: Commercial Paper and Banking, Corporate Finance, Employee Benefits Law, Estate Planning, Estates and Trusts, Estate and Gift Tax, Securities Regulation, Tax Procedure, Taxation of Business Enterprises, Advanced Tax Transactions (Seminar), Business Insolvency (Seminar), Dynamics of Corporate Control (Seminar), or  Tax Policy (Seminar); or such other course(s) as approved by Professor Livingston. 

In addition, all applicants must be interviewed by Professor Livingston before submitting a completed application to the Tax, Corporate Tax and Business Law Externship Program. 

* Chicago-Kent only requires 12 hours of work for 3 hours of credit; however a student's placement may from time to time require more hours of work. 

Where Do Students Extern?  

 After a student has been accepted in the program, the student and Professor Livingston begin the placement process.  We may have a limited number of available placements available at the Internal Revenue Service, an in-house corporate legal department, a bank trust department and a law firm or accounting firm. In addition, students may be interested in specific specialties or placements and the student and Professor Livingston will work together to procure a placement.   Please note that a student cannot extern for a current or former employer. 

Why Extern? 

An externship is a wonderful way to gain legal skills, familiarity with tax law and related areas, and generally enhance employment marketability upon graduation. 

If You Are Interested in Applying or Want More Information 

 If you are interested in learning more about the externship opportunities or in applying for the program, please see Professor Nancy R. Livingston in Room 688 to set up an appointment.  You may also email her at NLIVINGS. 

Information meeting Wednesday, November 18, 
from 3:00-4:00 and from 5:00-6:00, in room 580.

This program in which first-year day division students and first- or second-year evening division students may apply is different from any program at any other law school!  The day division students who are accepted begin the program during their second year of law school, and the evening division students who are accepted begin the program during their third year of law school. 

Becoming a lawyer takes more than sitting through three years of law school lectures.  It involves more than learning how to cross examine hostile witnesses, write presuasive briefs, and talk to clients.  Reading about subjects such as legal ethics or law practice management is not the same as learning about them from experience. 

Throughout the LADR program , you will learn legal doctrine, lawyering skills, and professional values, and work in Chicago-Kent's teaching law firm, supervised by clinical professors who are expert practitioners and mentors.  You will learn the art of lawyering through two years of intensive skills and clinical training.  Your experience will teach you how to become a competent, ethical, socially responsible lawyer. 

To learn more about this program, pelase contact Prof. Gary Laser, Room 631, or pick up an application and a brochure in Room 600.  There will also be an Information Meeting on Wednesday, November 18, in from 3:00-4:00 and from 5:00-6:00 in room 580.   Check the Record for more information on the meeting location. 

APPLICATIONS FOR THIS PROGRAM MUST BE TURNED IN BY FEBRUARY 1, 1999.  Please turn in applications in Room 600. 

UPDATE - The LADR Program!

Prior to Spring 1999 semester, ADR for LADR was limited to LADR students in their last year of law school.  LADR students in the day division may now take ADR in their fourth or sixth semester, and evening division LADR students may take ADR for LADR in their sixth or eighth semester of law school.

Evening division students generally begin the LADR curriculum in their fifth semester of law school.  However, evening students who are accepted to LADR in their second semester may take Trial Advocacy I in their fourth semester.
