EXCITING OPPORTUNITY FOR THIRD YEAR STUDENTS
SPRING 2000 SEMESTER:  EXTERNSHIPS WITH U.S. ATTORNEY'S
OFFICE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
 

           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. Attorney's Office.
