New Externship with the Department of Public Advocacy

Students will have the opportunity to participate in a public defender externship with the Kentucky Department of Public Advocacy in Summer and Fall 2012. Externs will be placed in either the appeals division, in the office in Frankfort, or the trial division, in the offices in LaGrange or Shepherdsville. The externship requires a student limited practice license. Externs in the appeals unit may be involved in reviewing trial records, identifying issues for appeal, researching and writing briefs, and attending oral arguments. Externs in the trial unit may be involved in performing preliminary hearings, probation revocations, and juvenile trials and bench trials in district court. If you are interested, please contact Professor Jordan as soon as possible. Interviews with a DPA representative may be scheduled for Tuesday April 3, 2012.
