Seventh Circuit Practice Externship


Seventh Circuit Practice Externship (LAW75737)

Four third-year students on the Moot Court Board each year write briefs and conduct oral arguments in appointed cases before the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit under the supervision of Adjunct Professor Robert Palmer, a leading appellate practitioner. The students typically write a brief during the fall semester and argue their cases during the spring semester. The students are chosen during their second year through the Moot Court Board’s internal competition. Participating students earn 2 total academic credits during the fall of their third year and one credit during the spring semester through the Lawyering Practice Externship seminar (1 credit) and the Seventh Circuit Practice fieldwork course (2 credits).

Instructor: Adjunct Professor Robert Palmer
