Graduate Lawyering Program
You may also apply to be a TA for the Graduate Lawyering Program. There are some notable differences between the Graduate Program and Lawyering: 1) our LLMs are lawyers in their home country and many have already practiced; 2) English is not their first language, and the range of ability varies; 3) the Graduate Lawyering course focuses more narrowly on legal research, writing, and analysis; and 4) our LLMs are from all over the world. Being a TA for Graduate Lawyering is a great opportunity to get to know them and to help them.
In 2023-24, Graduate Lawyering courses will be offered in the fall and spring, with most sections in the fall. The course has one- and two-credit sections; most sections carry one credit and meet every other week, for two hours ten minutes. TAs should be able to attend at least 2/3 of the class meetings. Under faculty supervision, TAs review students’ written work and provide feedback. TAs may be asked to hold office hours, lead research check-ins, or provide extra help to individual students. Depending on TAs’ interests, TAs sometimes teach part of a lesson or organize social events for the class.
To apply, please send your resume, transcript, and a writing sample to Caitlin Dean, Graduate Lawyering Administrative Assistant, at Caitlin.email@example.com. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Irene Ayers, Director of the Graduate Lawyering Program, Irene.firstname.lastname@example.org.
