Earn Academic Credit for Externship at Fort Knox

A new externship opportunity at Fort Knox is available for Fall 2013.  Student externs can earn two credits working with the US Cadet Command Office of the Staff Judge Advocate (OSJA), an office that provides legal services across the Fort Knox installation. 

The externship offers opportunities to develop research, litigation, and/or transactional legal skills, and to enhance legal knowledge across a broad range of areas: e.g., criminal law in federal courts, including civilian misdemeanor prosecution; civil litigation involving cases in courts throughout the region; and/or administrative law involving a range of substantive subject matter (e.g., government contracts, labor, ethics, environmental, or military personnel law).  Opportunities may exist to use a limited student practice license.  Externs are supervised by staff judge advocates or civilian attorneys working in the OSJAs. 

Will require 8 hours of field work per week during the fall semester.  Prerequisites: 60 hours, including first year curriculum.  Contact Professor Jordan for more information.
