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 Legal Externships and an accompanying application form are now available 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 ( to set up an appointment.


For Credit Externship Opportunities

Spring 2008 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 Carole Ross, administrative assistant to Professor Gross, in Room 612.

Completed applications must be received at the Office of the U.S. Attorney by Wednesday, September 12, 2007. 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, 2008, 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 Legal Externship Program and/or the externship position with the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
