EXCITING SUMMER EXTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENTS WHO WILL HAVE COMPLETED THEIR SECOND YEAR OF LAW SCHOOL BY MAY, 2004

SUMMER 2004 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 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 Wednesday, December 10, 2003.

To receive law school credit for this externship, should you be selected by the U.S. Attorney's Office, you must first obtain permission from Professor Vivien Gross in Room 617. Kent's for-credit applications will be available next semester.

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.

 

LEGAL EXTERNSHIP PROGRAM
SPRING 2004

Do you want to develop your legal skills, get practical legal experience, see what it is like to work in a corporation, firm or government agency and -- at the same time -- make yourself more marketable to prospective employers? If so, then consider doing a for-credit externship and signing up for Chicago-Kent's Legal Externship Program (LEP).

LEP is 4-credit hours, non-graded, and open predominantly to students in their last two semesters of law school.

Externs interested in civil law may select to work in corporations, firms or government agencies, specializing in such diverse legal areas as immigration, tax, commodities, securities, health care, medical malpractice, or general corporate law. Externs in criminal law may choose to work with the States Attorney's Office, Public Defender's Office, or the U.S. Attorney's Office. Some externships offer the opportunity to obtain a 711 license and appear in court.

If you want to know more about available externship opportunities, please e-mail Professor Vivien Gross (vgross@kentlaw.edu) to set up an appointment.

More information about Legal Externship and an accompanying application form are available in the Law Offices reception area, Room 600, and in the Career Services Office.

THE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY--PATENT CLINIC

Student interns in the IP-Patent Clinic will assist faculty and students at the Illinois Institute of Technology, the University of Illinois at Chicago, and other tech transfer or school related companies or institutions on selected "real-life" patent related matters. The student interns will work with and be supervised by the newly-appointed adjunct clinical faculty who are patent lawyers at Bell, Boyd, and Lloyd in providing patentability opinions, performing clearance searches, and guiding clients through the range of intellectual property legal issues that typically face start-up inventors and companies. In addition, the student interns will make presentations to Illinois Institute of Technology faculty and students on patent issues in an attempt to educate and market the IP-Patent Clinic to the faculty and students.

Prerequisites: Prior completion of Patent Law required. Because the IP-Patent Clinic experience will involve working with technology, it is very strongly recommended that students possess a technical background, and preference will be given those students in selecting clinic interns.

The IP-Patent Clinic is a three-credit course that will be offered in the fall and spring semesters, and it is anticipated that between 3-5 students will participate each semester.

CHICAGO-KENT OFFERS A FAMILY LAW CLINIC

Chicago-Kent College of Law offers a clinical program in family law. The family law clinic operates on a sliding scale fee basis, depending on the financial circumstances of the parties. The clinic represents clients in matters limited to cases to be brought before the Cook County Circuit Court. Client referrals are actively sought from the practicing bar, labor unions, employee groups, and educational institutions.

In addition, the clinical program provides a teaching platform for Chicago-Kent students who are interested in practicing in the area of family law. All student work is completed under the direct supervision of an attorney.

Attorney Ira C. Feldman has been named to oversee the new program. Prior to his appointment, Feldman was a partner at the law firm of Wildman, Harrold, Allen and Dixon. From 1981 to 1991, he was a partner at Naumark, Bonner and Feldman. Between 1975 and 1981, he headed Feldman and Associates. Feldman completed his undergraduate at American University and earned his law degree at the university’s Washington College of Law.

“Professor Feldman is a highly regarded and experienced practitioner of family law. He will expand the services of the Chicago-Kent Law Offices to include representation in matters of legal separation, divorce, child support, child custody, visitation, guardianships and other related matters,” said Professor Gary S. Laser director of clinical education.
