LEGAL EXTERNSHIP PROGRAM
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 three semesters of law school.
Externs interested in civil law may select to work 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.
More information about Spring 2007 Legal Externships and
an accompanying application form will be available in late
October in the Law Offices reception area, Room 600, and
in the Career Services Office.
If you want to know more about available externship opportunities,
please e-mail Professor Vivien Gross (firstname.lastname@example.org)
to set up an appointment.
EXCITING OPPORTUNITY FOR 3LS - Spring 2007 Semester
EXTERNSHIPS WITH U.S. ATTORNEY’S OFFICE NORTHERN DISTRICT
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 Tuesday, September 12, 2006. 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, 2007, will be available in mid-October in Room 600 Law Offices reception area and in the Career Services office.
will be happy to answer any questions you may have about
either the Legal Externship Program and/or the externship
position with the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
