Legal Writing Teaching Assistant Applications
Applications are now being accepted for legal writing teaching assistants for the year 1999-2000. Applicants must be graduating in June 2000 to apply. Teaching assistants work closely with the legal writing professors in teaching legal research, creating assignments and grading student papers. They also work closely with students in drafting and revising their work. Applicants should have received superior grades (B+ or above) in their legal writing courses and have a strong interest in helping other students to master the skills of legal research and writing. Membership in Law Review or Moot Court is desirable, but is not a requirement of the job. Evening students are encouraged to apply. Teaching assistants receive two credit hours each semester. (Note: these are not tuition-free credits.)
In order to serve as a teaching assistant you must be available to attend a training session which will take place on Friday, August 20, 1999.
Interested students should submit a current resume to Professor Ehrenberg in room 753. Please indicate on your resume the name of your first-year legal writing professor and the grades you recieved in the course. Applications should be submitted by Monday, April 19. After you have submitted a resume, please sign up for an interview on the schedule outside Professor Ehrenberg's door. The interview will last approximately 20 minutes, then applicants will be asked to complete a short closed-book quiz on grammer, punctuation and citation form.
If you have any questions please contact Professor Ehrenberg.
