SPRING 2002 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 24, 2001. 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 Legal (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.

 

JUDICIAL EXTERNSHIPS: SPRING 2002 SEMESTERFOR
SECOND AND THIRD YEAR STUDENTS WITH A MINIMUM 3.3 G.P.A.

Informational Meeting

On Tuesday, September 25, 2001 at 12:00 p.m. in Room 580, 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 2002 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 drafting opinions. 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!

Application Process

The applications for Spring 2002 Judicial Externships will be available both in the Law Offices Reception Area (Room 600) and in the Career Services Offices as of Thursday, September 20th.

Completed applications should be submitted to Ms. Carole Ross, Secretary to Professor Gross, Room 612, Law Offices, by Tuesday, October 9, 2000 at 5:00 p.m.
