This externship combines intensive work in the chambers of a Second Circuit judge with class sessions. Work with the judge will involve legal research, analysis and writing on the cases to which (s)he is assigned. It is possible, but not promised, that externs will work on an opinion. Class sessions are taught in a variety of styles. Several lectures address fundamental topics of appellate review and federal jurisdictions. Other classes feature distinguished guest speakers who discuss various aspects of appellate practice. In other sessions, students discuss their externship experiences. There also is a moot court exercise in which students argue before Second Circuit Judges.
