All new Law Offices students are required to attend a mandatory introductory meeting on Monday, August 23, 1999, from 4:00 p.m. to 4:55 p.m. in Room 580. The Law Offices Student Handbook will be distributed at the meeting and is also available on line at www.kentlaw.edu/academics/clinic.
All returning students should contact their supervising attorney and pick up a handbook from the Receptionist in Suite 600 on the morning of August 23, 1999.
All students enrolled in the Criminal Clinic must complete an MCC form and return it to the Receptionist in Suite 600 by August 23, 1999. Please contact Rosie Flores (email rflores) with any questions.
If you are interested in exposure to and possible participation in federal trial and appellate practice while assisting the U.S. Attorney's Office in handling its multitude of important cases, please pick up an application from Professor Gross in Room 617.
Completed applications must be received at the Office of the U.S. Attorney by Friday, September 10, 1999. The reason for this 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 enroll in the law school's Advanced Externship Program. The law school's externship applications will be available in early October in Room 600 Law Offices and in the Career Services office.
Professor Gross will be happy to answer any questions you may have about
either the Externship Program or the externship position with the U.S.
