The academy is a unique and invaluable opportunity for law school and undergraduate intern students offered during the summer. It provides students with opportunities to receive expert training with a classroom component. With this experience, law clerks and summer interns are able to observe presentations on evidence-based training. In addition, both clerks and interns will hear first-hand accounts from prosecutors about their career track in a panel format. The academy will meet on Friday afternoons, three times throughout the summer, in Chicago's downtown loop.
The academy is open to all summer law clerks and undergraduate interns. There is no application process and attendance is not mandatory. The academy is meant to be informative and helpful to students considering a career in criminal prosecution or law.
