Description of Field Work
Externs are placed in chambers and will gain first-hand experience in the preparation and running of the court docket. Externs will observe court, draft memos concerning relevant legal issues, review files, research legislative updates, and assist in drafting judgments. Students are encouraged to apply who are interested in juvenile justice, delinquency, and dependency.
All interested students are encouraged to apply.
Interested students should contact Prof. Linares at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment. After speaking with Prof. Linares, students will be directed to fill out the Externship Application available at http://law.loyno.edu/externships. Once cleared by OSEL to apply, students will be given instructions on submitting application materials to the placement.
Loyola's application deadlines for each semester are posted on the homepage of the Externship Program website. However, students should apply early as students are accepted on a rolling basis and placements may be filled prior to the application deadline.
