IN THE JUDICIAL CLERKSHIP EXTERNSHIP, students work as part-time law clerks under the supervision of local, state, and federal trial and appellate judges in Missouri and Illinois. Students conduct extensive legal research; draft legal memoranda for cases before the courts; and observe hearings, trials, and other court proceedings.  They receive structured, hands-on exposure to civil and criminal litigation from the judicial perspective. Students also develop advanced legal research and writing skills, participate in the judicial decision-making process, and critically observe practitioners and judges. Judicial Clerkship Externship Externs are uniquely qualified and prepared for judicial clerkships after graduation. Bob Kuhen, Associate Dean for Clinical Education; Professor of Law and Director, oversees this program.
