Notre Dame Law in Chicago

Fall 2012 Chicago Program Students

Notre Dame Law in Chicago (LAW 75760)


Notre Dame Law in Chicago offers an opportunity for semester-long externships in a variety of legal organizations in one of the nation’s largest and most diverse legal markets, just 90 miles from the law school’s South Bend, Indiana campus. The program, which debuted in August 2012, allows students to work four days per week in non-profit legal organizations, governmental law offices, judicial chambers, or in-house corporate counsel offices under the careful supervision and mentoring of a practicing attorney. The program operates out of a beautiful new classroom space at 224 S. Michigan Avenue.

Many third year students in the program will be able to represent clients with an Illinois student practice license, commonly known as a 711 license. Chicago offers hundreds of potential placements in a rich array of practice areas.

Students earn eight academic credits for their field placements and also participate in a two-credit seminar taught weekly in Chicago by a law school faculty member. The seminar is designed to help students maximize the learning from their externships by reflecting on the legal profession, ethics, practice skills, and their own professional development. Students must also earn a minimum of four additional academic credits through course work that is not associated with the externship.

Instructor: Professor Robert Jones
