Earn Academic Credit for Summer & Fall Externships

Slots remain available for a number of externship experiences for summer and fall 2014.  Externships enhance your legal education by providing many opportunities not available in the classroom: opportunities to develop lawyering skills under the supervision of a licensed attorney serving as mentor and teacher, and to explore career options and make valuable contacts in the legal community.  Also, earning externship credit during the summer semester frees up time for, and provides experience that may help with, employment opportunities during the fall and spring semesters.  Don’t wait until your last semester of law school to take advantage of these valuable experiences.  Placements are available at the following sites:

Legal Aid Society
Children’s Law Center
Metro Gov’t (Office of the Mayor)
Cabinet for Health & Family Services, Administrative Hearing Div.
Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney
County Attorney’s Office
Kentucky Department of Public Advocacy
Fort Knox, Office of the Staff Judge Advocate
US Attorney’s Office
Jefferson County Circuit and Family Courts

Detailed information about opportunities and prerequisites is available on the TWEN course titled “Externship INFORMATION.”  You may also contact Professor Jordan for information, in office 287 or via email at  karen.jordan@louisville.edu.  Priority due date for pre-registration is Wednesday April 2nd.
