Lawyering and Graduate Lawyering TA Application Information for 2018-2019 AY

Posted on

All rising 2Ls and 3Ls are invited to apply for Teaching Assistant positions for the Lawyering Program. Applications should be submitted via this link: https://its.law.nyu.edu/lawyeringTASignup/index.cfm?fuseaction=student.main from Monday, May 21st until Friday, June 15th.

You should apply to each faculty member individually. You may apply to more than one faculty member. Each application should include the cover form which you download from the link on the landing page, a cover letter, resume, and writing sample.

 

We have seven new faculty members joining us this year. Their official bios will be available on the law school website beginning June 1st.

 

Lawyering TAs receive one credit per semester and should be able to attend a minimum of 1/3 of the classes.

 

Contact Krista Minteer-Baysal at krista.minteer@nyu.edu with any questions.

 

You may also apply to be a TA for the Graduate Lawyering Program. There are notable distinctions between being a TA for the Graduate Program and for Lawyering. Here are a few: (1) LLMs are lawyers with a sophisticated outlook as most have already practiced; (2) English is a non-native language, and the range of ability varies significantly; (3) the course focuses more narrowly on research, writing and analysis; and (4) LLMs come from all over the world; this is a great opportunity to get to know them and to help them in their work.

 

There are 13 Graduate Lawyering sections in the fall; 3 week-long sections in January before the spring semester and 2 sections in the spring semester. The course has one- and two-credit variants. Most Graduate Lawyering sections carry one credit and meet for two hours every other week. Classes occur at various times throughout the week, but most are on Wednesday afternoons. There will be 11 sections of Graduate Lawyering Foundations, carrying one credit, in the fall and 2 sections of Graduate Lawyering Intensive, carrying two credits, for those who want to pay additional attention to their writing and analytical skills in the first semester. Under faculty supervision, TAs will have substantial responsibility in reviewing written work and providing feedback to students. TAs will also work with students on the students’ ongoing writing projects, advising on structure, content, and style, as well as providing instruction on legal citation. TAs will work closely with faculty in a collegial atmosphere.

 

To apply, please send your resume, transcript and a writing sample to Veronica Cruz, Graduate Lawyering Administrative Assistant, at cruzv@mercury.law.nyu.edu. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mary Holland, Director of the Graduate Lawyering Program, at mary.holland@nyu.edu.
