The Advice Desk at the Daley Center is now hiring students through a work study program to work in paralegal/administrative positions.

EXCITING OPPORTUNITY FOR 3Ls
SPRING 2006 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 Monday, September 26, 2005. 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 Externship Program. The law school’s externship applications for spring semester, 2006, will be available in mid-October in Room 600 Law Offices reception area 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.
