Gaining Real World Experience as a Judicial Extern

Sydney Saffold ’13 worked as a judicial extern for Judge Nadine Allen, Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas. Here she shares what the experience meant to her.

“Working with Judge Nadine Allen was the most valuable experience I've had in law school.  It afforded me the opportunity to observe the legal system at work from the epicenter of the action.   I was exposed to both civil and criminal litigation, established invaluable relationships, and participated with the judge in her decision making routine.  I am grateful to Judge Allen for being a phenomenal teacher and mentor, and truly blessed to have had the opportunity through the program offered through UC.
