Please explain:

Because of rules governing actual or potential conflicts of interest, a student's outside legal employment or other law-related activities could disqualify the student for some judicial placements. Please see Steve Emens or Randy Quarles, the Judicial Externship Program Co-Directors, if you have any questions.

Preferences for Office Location. Please see attached list for tentative placements. Indicate in the appropriate spaces below (1) whether you would accept a placement in Birmingham, Montgomery and/or Tuscaloosa; and (2) the judges and/or public interest organizations with whom you would prefer to be placed, if you have a preference. Please keep in mind that, because of the limited placements in each city, eliminating either Montgomery, Birmingham or Tuscaloosa will reduce the number of placements for which you might otherwise be eligible. Also while your preferences for specific placements will receive strong consideration, by submitting this application you agree to accept a placement with any judge in Birmingham, if you do not exclude Birmingham below, or in Tuscaloosa, if you do not exclude Tuscaloosa below. (Any proposed placement in a location other than Tuscaloosa or Birmingham would be subject to you prior approval.) Students may apply for both judicial and public interest placements by choosing from the drop down menu below.

By Applying for the Academic-Year Externship Program, you commit to participation in the Program and assignment to one of the cities you list if you are selected. Please do not turn in an application unless you are committed to serving in one of the cities listed below. If you have questions about whether to apply given this restriction, please speak with Steve Emens or Randy Quarles prior to the application deadline.
