Legal Externship Program
Summer or Fall 2005 Semester
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 through Chicago-Kent’s
Legal Externship Program (LEP).
LEP is 4-credit hours, non-graded, and open primarily
to students in their last two semesters of law school and
to 2Ls with permission from Professor Gross.
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
or whether a specific legal volunteer opportunity enables
you to receive law school credit, please e-mail Professor
Vivien Gross (firstname.lastname@example.org)
to set up an appointment.
More information about Legal Externships and an accompanying
application form are available in the Law Offices reception
area, Room 600, and in the Career Services Office.
