									                           SUMMER JUDICIAL EXTERNSHIPS
I.      INTRODUCTION
        The Office of Career Services (“OCS”) handles all facets of summer judicial externships that are
not for academic credit. A summer judicial externship is an excellent career-enhancing opportunity to
work for a federal or state judge during your summer. 1 While the responsibilities of a summer judicial
extern vary, judicial externs have an opportunity to refine their legal analysis and writing skills, gain
exposure to adversarial practice, and witness the judicial decision-making process from a valuable
perspective. Working closely with judges, externs often develop important, lasting relationships while
maximizing their marketability for future employment. In addition, a summer judicial externship is often
an important component in securing a post-graduate judicial clerkship.2

        Typically, summer judicial externships are 1L summer jobs but they are also available during a
student’s 2L summer. Invariably, summer judicial externships are almost always volunteer positions and
UCLA School of Law does not offer credit, work study or funding for summer externships.

        Judicial externships are available in both federal and state courts. In the federal court system,
externships are available in the Circuit Courts of Appeals, District Courts and Bankruptcy Courts. In the
state court system, externships are available at some state Supreme Courts, Courts of Appeal, and Superior
Courts.

II.     THE APPLICATION PROCESS
        Many externship opportunities with federal and state judiciary members are available for the
summer of 2008. In order to apply for a summer judicial externship, students must: (1) select judges to
whom they will apply; and (2) compile and submit an application to each judge within the recommended
timeframe. In turn, if judges are interested they will contact you directly to arrange an interview and
potentially, extend an offer.

        A.       Application Timeline: “When Should I Apply?”
       To maximize your chances of securing an externship, apply early! Students should begin to consider
summer judicial externships late in the Fall semester of either their first or second year. To maximize
your chances of securing a summer judicial externship you should submit applications to federal
judges by early December or shortly after final exams, if necessary. In the past, most students who
obtained summer externships with federal courts were interviewed and hired beginning in December,
continuing through January and into the Spring semester. Students who wait until the middle of January

or later to apply to federal judges may be dismayed to find that many judges, especially at the federal level,
have hired their summer externs.

     Hiring timelines for state court judges usually fall slightly later. Monitor the UCLA job board, the
OCS Newsletter, the State Court resources (listed below) and your e-mail for additional information.

        B.       Resources: “Which Judges Do I Apply To?”
         While the scope of this handout does not allow for an in-depth treatment of how to research for a
judicial externship, there are a number of resources which you may wish to review. It is important that
you research courts and particular judges.

FEDERAL RESOURCES:
        The Federal-State Court Directory 2008 Edition (CQ Press) contains the name, address
         and phone number of all the federal judges in the United States. It also describes how each
         state organizes its court system and often gives the address of the state court buildings as
         well. OCS and the Law Library maintain copies of the Directory. You can also view the
         Directory online at http://www.courts.cqpress.com (“Click to login,” the login is “judicial”
         and the password is “court”).

                The Almanac of the Federal Judiciary contains biographical information, noteworthy
                 rulings and summaries of media coverage. You can find the Almanac in OCS, the Law
                 Library or online through Westlaw (database identifier “AFJ”).

                The Daily Journal also publishes Judicial Profiles, which you can also find in OCS or the
                 Law Library containing biographical information and notable opinions of the federal
                 appellate and district court judges within California.

                Links to websites of all Federal Appellate, District and Bankruptcy courts can be found at:
                 www.uscourts.gov/allinks.html.

                For a comprehensive directory containing contact information for judges and their staff,
                 refer to the Judicial Yellow Book (Spring 2007) located in OCS.

STATE RESOURCES:
   Judicial Profiles contains biographical information of almost all of the state judges in California.

       California Courts and Judges, Vol. 1 & Vol. 2 (2007 – 2008 Edition) contains biographical
        information about every California judge and outlines the jurisdiction of each court in California.

       Vermont Law School also publishes a comprehensive guide to state court judicial clerkships
        entitled The 2007 Guide to State Judicial Clerkship Procedures. Although primarily designed for
        clerkships, this guide could be helpful in locating am address and contact name for state courts
        outside of California.

                                                       2
        You can access it online at http://www.vermontlaw.edu/blank_template.cfm?doc_id=94 (the
        login is “Guide2007” and the password is “Juneau”).

    ADDITIONAL RESOURCES
       Student Employment Evaluations: You may find it helpful to read the judicial evaluations
         written by UCLA students who have externed with judges in the summer or as part of our
         academic year externship program. These evaluations can be very useful when making a
         decision about an externship. Often these evaluations contain information concerning the
         types of assignments, the amount of time spent with the judge and the amount of feedback
         received. These evaluations will of course be limited to the judges who participate in our
         externship-for-credit program during the academic year and the judges with whom students
         have externed during the summer.
             o Academic Externship Evaluations: The academic year evaluations are located in the
                 Externship Office located in Room 1475 of the Law School.
             o Summer Externship Student Evaluations: Student Employment Evaluation Forms
                 from summer externships from 2003-2005 can be viewed online (“Career Services” →
                 “Current Students” → “Student Employment Evaluations”) and 2006-2007 evaluations
                 are located on Symplicity (“Profile” → “Evaluations” → “Search”).

        C.      Application Materials: “What Do I Send?”
       The application packet includes the following components: a cover letter, resume, legal writing
sample (usually a Lawyering Skills paper) and a list of references.

                a.      Cover Letter
          Cover letters for purposes of externship applications are formal job applications and the cover
letter should be addressed to the specific judge to whom you are applying. First, you should make clear at
the beginning of your cover letter that you are applying for a summer externship because judges are
often receiving applications for academic year externships around the same time. Second, your cover letter
should be brief, no longer than one page. It should indicate the following: (1) you are enrolled at UCLA
School of Law; (2) your class year; (3) your desire to extern with this judge during the summer of 2008;
and (4) a description of the material you are enclosing with the letter (i.e., a resume, a writing sample and a
list of references). You should also offer to provide additional information upon request. On page 9 is a
sample cover letter. Please remember this is a sample letter – and the actual letter should be personalized
by you.

        Specifically, the following format should be used when addressing a letter to a judge:

                The Honorable Arthur L. Alarcon
                United States Court of Appeals
                for the Ninth Circuit
                1607 United States Courthouse
                312 North Spring Street
                Los Angeles, CA 90012

                Dear Judge Alarcon:
                                                       3
or

                The Honorable Stephen V. Wilson
                United States District Court
                for the Central District of California
                United States Courthouse
                312 North Spring Street
                Los Angeles, CA 90012

                Dear Judge Wilson:

or              The Honorable Vincent P. Zurzolo
                United States Bankruptcy Court
                for the Central District of California
                Edward R. Roybal Federal Building
                255 East Temple Street
                Los Angeles, CA 90012

                Dear Chief Judge Zurzolo:

or              The Honorable Margaret A. Nagle
                United States District Court
                for the Central District of California
                United States Courthouse
                312 North Spring Street
                Los Angeles, CA 90012

                Dear Judge Nagle:

or              The Honorable Steven Z. Perren
                California Court of Appeal
                Second Appellate District, Division Six
                200 East Santa Clara Street
                Ventura, CA 93001

                Dear Justice Perren:

         Large states are divided into more than one district, but small states contain only one district.
When a state has more than one district, the appropriate designation, "Northern, Southern, Eastern,
Western, Central or Middle" district, should be included in the address. If a district covers the entire state,
there is no need for such a designation.

        All judges have the title "Honorable."

         The abbreviation for the state should be the two-letter U.S. Post Office code. Do not write out
the full name of the state.
                                                         4
        A salutation must be included. Most federal judges and lower state court judges are addressed as
"Judge," while most state appellate judges (state Supreme Court and Court of Appeal) are referred to as
"Justice," although there may be some exceptions. If you are uncertain about how to address a judge in
your cover letter, please contact your Section Advisor for guidance. Please refer to the “Sample Cover
Letter” on page 9 of this Handout.

                b.      Resume
        Review and revise your resume to ensure it is current and error free. The resume should cover
academic background, outside activities (including membership in student groups, law review and/or
journals), employment experience, publications, and any other information that might help a judge make
his or her decision. Be sure to emphasize strong research and writing skills throughout your application as
these are important qualifications for a summer judicial externship.

                c.      Legal Writing Sample
        Each application should contain a polished legal writing sample demonstrating your legal
proficiency. Most 1L’s use a paper from the Lawyering Skills course as a writing sample. However, before
you send any writing sample, you should proofread it and revise it in light of your instructor’s comments.

                d.      References
        Students should provide professional references, such as faculty members or employers, rather
than personal references. Your reference list should contain the name and contact information for two to
four professional references. Unlike a post-graduate judicial clerkship application, letters of
recommendation are not required.

                e.      Transcripts – Only Necessary for 2L’s
         Generally, a transcript is not required for 1L applicants in the fall because most judges recognize
that first year students applying in December do not have grades. Thus, you do not need to include a
transcript in your application nor should you delay mailing your application to wait for your first semester
grades. If a transcript is required, a judge will request you to furnish an official copy or you can supply it
when it becomes available.

        However, if you are applying for a summer judicial externship as a second year then you should
include a copy of your transcript in your application material.

        Finally, it is very important to check your cover letter, resume, writing sample, and a list of
references for both grammatical and spelling errors. Your OCS Section Advisor will be available to assist
with the summer judicial externship application process, including preparing an effective application and
selecting judges to whom to apply.

        D.      Judicial Externship Interviews: “What Should I Expect?”
         Most judges will make a final choice only after an interview. A few judges may make their
selections based upon telephone interviews but many require a personal interview, which occurs at the
applicant’s expense. Once an applicant has made the resume cut and is selected for an interview, the focus
shifts from the applicant’s credentials to issues of fit. Most candidates that are selected for interviews have
the credentials and experience necessary to be a successful summer extern, but the judge is interested in
hiring someone with whom he/she can work with effectively.

        Interviews are typically conducted in the judge’s chambers, allowing the judge, the judicial clerks
and his/her support staff to form impressions about the candidate. Interviews will last anywhere from a
few minutes to an hour or longer. Most judges do not simply quiz candidates on substantive law, but
candidates should be prepared to answer questions about the legal issues raised in their writing sample or
favorite class/area of the law. Become familiar with recent or noteworthy cases that have either gained
national attention or have come from the judge’s court. Get familiar with the judge’s opinions, dissents
and personal history to try to anticipate areas that the judge may be interested in discussing.

        Good sources of information to prepare for an interview include: (1) The Almanac of the Federal
Judiciary; (2) Judicial Profiles published by the Daily Journal; (3) the news databases in Lexis and Westlaw;
(4) an Internet search engine such as “Google;” (5) the judge’s opinions, including dissents and
concurrences; and (6) Student Employment Evaluation Forms that are available on-line (see Section B).

         Candidates should be prepared to ask questions of the judge and clerks. Remember that this, like
all interviews, is a conversation. Candidates might ask about the scope of an extern’s responsibilities,
working conditions, the nature of the docket, and how responsibilities are delegated. Questions should be
thoughtful and should illustrate a genuine interest in the position. The overall impression you should seek
to convey is that you are grateful to have the opportunity to interview and that you are enthusiastic about
externing for this particular judge.

If you receive an offer for a summer judicial externship, OCS recommends you accept. Once you
accept an externship, you are expected to fulfill your commitment, regardless of the fact that it is an
unpaid position. As a courtesy, please remember to withdraw your application from consideration if you
accept another position or if you decide to remove yourself from the applicant pool. Please also resp ond
to every call from a judge, even if your response is to say you are no longer interested in a position. We
have received feedback from judges with regard to both of these procedures and have been asked to pass
along this advice. The application period is quite short; therefore, it is essential that you respond to
inquiries quickly and withdraw your application immediately when necessary .

SAMPLE COVER LETTER

                                    [STUDENT’S CONTACT INFO]


December 16, 2007


The Honorable Harry Pregerson
United States Court of Appeals
for the Ninth Circuit
21800 Oxnard Street, Suite 1140
Woodland Hills, CA 91367-3633

Dear Judge Pregerson:

I am currently a first year student at the UCLA School of Law, writing to express my interest in working as
a judicial extern in your chambers during this summer. I believe that working in chambers will provide a
perfect complement to my classroom education and I look forward to the opportunity to see how the legal
system operates.

In addition to the research and writing skills I acquired as a Political Science major at the University of
California, Berkeley, I have been developing strong legal research and writing skills in my Lawyering Skills
class. Thus, my first year in law school coupled with my undergraduate education have aptly prepared me
to handle complex legal research and writing projects. Additionally, my work experience at Pottery Barn
has taught me effective interpersonal skills. Finally, my record of working during college as well as every
summer evidences my strong work ethic. Accordingly, I believe I possess the skills necessary to be a
valuable asset to your chambers.

I have enclosed a copy of my resume, a brief writing sample and a list of references. I would greatly
appreciate the chance to meet with you to demonstrate my strong interest in an externship position in your
chambers. I look forward to hearing from you.


                                              Sincerely,

                                   [STUDENT’S HANDWRITTEN SIGNATURE AND FULL NAME]



WARNING: Do NOT copy this sample letter verbatim or you will be sending the same letter as 100 of
your classmates. This is not likely to impress the recipient.
