United States Magistrate Judge William H. Baughman, Jr. of Cleveland, Ohio, and his law clerk, Steve Kurdziel, will install Bridget Fitzpatrick as a judicial intern at 2 p.m. Thursday, February 2 in the third floor conference room of Aurelius Hall on the campus of Saint Vincent College.
Ms. Fitzpatrick, a junior political science major from Pittsburgh, will serve during the spring semester in the United States District Court in the Northern District of Ohio. She is the latest Saint Vincent student to participate in a remote internship program between Judge Baughman’s office and Saint Vincent College. Instructional sessions are conducted by Webex videoconference and by telephone conference.
These internships were developed by Judge Baughman, a 1971 graduate of Saint Vincent College, with the cooperation of Fr. Rene Kollar, O.S.B., Dean of the Saint Vincent College School of Humanities and Fine Arts; Dr. Gary Quinlivan, Dean of the Alex G. McKenna School of Business, Economics, and Government; Dr. Gabriel Pellathy, professor of political science; and Courtney Baum, director of the Career Center.
Saint Vincent College’s Internship Program is an academic program that allows students to work off campus to acquire career-related skills, earn academic credit, earn money and develop a professional network for future employment contacts.
Following the swearing-in ceremony, Judge Baughman will conduct an internship instructional session at 2:30 p.m. in room 33 of Alfred Hall for Ms. Fitzpatrick as well as other pre-law students and others interested in learning more about the remote internship program or effective writing. The first hour of instruction will center on effective approaches to writing (the Garner method), organization and writing techniques. After a break, the second session will focus on techniques as applied to the writing of judicial opinions.
