    Summer 2009 Externship Opportunities

Starting the week of October 20, 2008, applications will be accepted at the Remington Center for second-year law students interested in a criminal justice-related externship for the summer of 2009.

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 ten-week paid 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

In addition to the classes noted students participating in the Hayes Police-Prosecution Internship would also enroll in Selected Problems in Policing offered during the spring semester.

Applications and informational brochures will be available the week of October 13th  at the Remington Center Main Office (Room 4318) or the Career Services Office.
