This Externship course will allow students to develop an understanding of legal issues arising from environmental protection in Kentucky, and to increase their understanding of the role played by attorneys in the Energy and Environment Cabinet. Student work at the Cabinet will be supervised by a full-time attorney at the Cabinet. Students will also meet together with the Environmental Law instructor every two weeks to discuss and reflect on their work at the Cabinet.  The two-credit externship is limited to two students.

Scheduling note: Students planning to enroll in this externship should be sure to have half- or full-day time slots to allow for travel to Frankfort on working days. Students who enroll must contact John Horne, General Counsel of the Cabinet, immediately after enrollment to begin the process of approval to work. This takes a long time and you cannot complete the externship without approval. He may be reached at
