  • Practical Lessons | School of Law | SIU
    people can make your life very easy or really difficult depending on how they feel about you Lorelei Frost Illinois Appellate Court Third District One particularly valuable observation I made is that certain attorneys seem to get much better deals than others from the prosecutor If a prosecutor knows a particular attorney is experienced a skilled litigator and always well prepared the fear of losing will motivate that prosecutor to offer a much better deal J C Weyand Tenth Judicial Circuit Hannibal MO The good attorneys fought the good fight even when they were losing They made every objection got everything on the record and acted as if their case would prevail As the judge taught me even if it is just a show for your client you want to convince everyone watching that you did everything that could be done so as not to be likely to be charged with malpractice or ineffective counsel P David Stevens St Louis County Court I learned that you have to be careful what questions you ask and when because you never know what will come out of the mouths of witnesses Bobi James 9th Judicial Circuit IL I saw the importance of properly phrasing questions during examination Each time the plaintiff s attorney would begin to lead the witness the defendant s attorney would object After the fifth sustained objection in five minutes it became clear that the jury and almost everyone else in the courtroom became exasperated These objections detracted from the flow of the case and made the plaintiff s attorney seem less than competent Alex Tietz Kane County IL Circuit Court Obviously when the plaintiff s attorney failed to inform the other side that his client had passed away and tried to settle the case on top of it

  • How to Secure a Placement in the Judicial Extern Clinic | School of Law | SIU
    siu edu to discuss your desired externship placement number of academic credits and the dates in which you plan to complete the externship Students seeking placement at sites that are not currently approved must apply for approval before enrolling in the court Contact Professor Noble Allgire to obtain the one page application form upon which the judge will list the experiences that will be available to the extern at that placement site 2 Contact the placement site Typically your first contact should be through a letter of application sent to the judge who will be the placement site supervisor but in some cases a telephone call may be acceptable Click here for template of an application letter You should then follow up with a telephone call to determine whether the judge is willing to accept an extern during the desired time period and if so what additional steps if any the judge wants you to take to secure the externship 3 Prepare for an interview Some judges have a number of students applying for externships with them and conduct interviews before selecting one or two students as externs You should prepare for this interview the same as with any legal job interview which means professional attire bringing additional copies of your resume and writing samples and being prepared to answer questions about your background and experience You should also take the additional step of researching the judge s for whom you want to extern find out how long he she has been on the bench something about the judge s educational and legal background and something about the cases he she has handled Westlaw and Lexis are good tools for this purpose offering an opportunity to research cases for which the judge has written an opinion or has had reviewed

  • Experiences | School of Law | SIU
    magistrate judge Pitzer said she had the opportunity to observe a broad spectrum of court proceedings including misdemeanor felony DUI domestic violence child support arbitration landlord tenant small claims traffic weddings and all the civil claims I worked on it was great exposure Externs said the experience helped them in a number of ways from improving their research and writing skills to helping them meet attorneys in the geographic areas where the externs intend to practice after law school I learned what annoys judges what happens when you write poorly how to address people in court federal court practices so much I can t even name said second year student Danielle Patterson who worked with U S Magistrate Judge David Bernthal in Urbana Illinois I was able to see what really persuades an appellate court justice said second year student Ross Sorenson who worked with both Illinois Appellate Court Justice Stephen Spomer and U S Magistrate Judge Philip Frazier As a result of his experience Sorenson said he is a more confident researcher and writer and am more confident in the courtroom All of the abstract concepts of civil procedure make a lot more sense after seeing the anatomy of a lawsuit in real life Students may enroll in the Judicial Extern Clinic any time after they have completed their first year of law school Although the clinic has been offered only during the summer a proposal is pending to offer the clinic in the fall and spring semesters as well I can t imagine a more educational or fulfilling way to spend the summer after the first year of law school than participating in the Judicial Externship program said second year law student Justin Volker who worked with Circuit Court Judge Marc Rosen in Catlettsburg Kentucky On top of everything I learned the program allowed me to observe a wide range of practice areas which helped me greatly narrow my career interests Third year law student Naila Robinson agreed I had the opportunity to see many different types of law which was very important to me because I am unsure of what area I would like to pursue in practice said Robinson who clerked for several judges at the Jackson County Courthouse in Murphysboro Illinois Professor Alice Noble Allgire who assumed responsibility for the Judicial Extern Clinic this year upon the retirement of Legal Clinic Director Mary Rudasill said it was a pleasure to hear from students about how much they had learned from their judges Law professors expose students to a lot of things in the classroom but there are some things that law students can t really appreciate until they see it unfold in real life said Noble Allgire For example I often tell students about the importance of paying attention to detail to things like spelling grammar and citation form Extern clinic students can see for themselves what happens when an attorney fails to do so Several students commented this summer about how attorneys lost credibility
