LA Externship Programme
Thomas Stewart is delighted to be the 2019 recipient of the LA Externship
The Irish American Bar Association of California has, since 1991, organised a placement programme whereby Law Students from Ireland are given the opportunity to work as Judicial Externs in the Federal District Courts of Los Angeles. The Law School at Queen’s has long been an active participant in the programme and many of our students have benefited from the experience of working in another jurisdiction. Thomas Stewart is delighted to be the 2019 recipient of the LA Externship, and says this about the opportunity:
“The opportunity to represent Queen's and Northern Ireland in the U.S. Federal Court System for the summer is an enormous privilege. Being able to conduct rigorous and meaningful legal research under the supervision of judges on the federal bench is something that I look forward to being valuable preparation for an academic career, and to do so in one of the great cities of the world is an especially welcome bonus. I am very grateful both to the School of Law for nominating me to the externship, and to the Irish American Bar Association of California for hosting me this summer."
We look forward to hearing Thomas’s update when he returns!
