Required Book and First Class Assignment

We will meet from 5:00 – 5:50 in Room 107 on most Tuesdays, with our first class on Tuesday, August 21.

Our text for the semester is Jennifer Sheppard’s In Chambers: A Guide for Judicial Clerks and Externs (2012), which will be supplemented with materials posted on the course TWEN site.  I have asked the Law Library to put its two copies of this text on two-hour reserve.

Students should join the TWEN course page to receive additional course material.

For our first class please read pages 1 to 27 of In Chambers (What Do Judicial Externs and Clerks Do?; Basic Information to Get You Started; Civil Litigation Process).  In addition, please read the externship page on the law school website: and bring to class the completed Judicial Externship Placement form from the TWEN site and a copy of your resume.

Please contact me if you have any questions about our course.  I can be reached at or in my office in Room 335. See you in class on the 21st.
