Applications for Summer 2011 Remington Center Externships Open Oct. 18

Starting the week of October 18, 2010, applications will be accepted at the Remington Center for second-year law students interested in a criminal justice-related externship for the summer of 2011.

 There are three distinct projects: (1) the Prosecution Project (2) the Defender Project and (3) the Hayes Police-Prosecution Internship. Each project offers an opportunity for a paid summer internship working with a Wisconsin district attorney, public defender or as part of a joint police-prosecutor partnership. Placement options are available in all areas of Wisconsin.

Each project has classroom components in the spring and fall in addition to the paid summer internship. The Prosecution and Defender Projects consist of the following: a 3 credit spring preparatory seminar;a 2 credit spring trial advocacy class; a paid summer internship in which the student is certified under ch. 50, the Wisconsin Student Practice Rules; and a 2 credit fall seminar which satisfies the professional responsibility requirement for graduation.

Students participating in the Hayes Police-Prosecution Internship would enroll in Selected Problems in Policing during the spring semester as well as the classes required for the Prosecution Project.

Applications and informational brochures will be available at the Remington Center Main Office (Room 4318) or the Career Services Office. Each applicant must sign up for an interview. Available time slots are listed in the Main Office of the Remington Center. Placement offers will be announced on or about December 1, 2010.
