Legal Writing Teaching Assistant

Applications are now being accepted for legal writing teaching assistants for the year 2001-02. You must be graduating in June 2002 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 hours of academic credit each semester and salary equal to the tuition for two credit hours each semester. (Note that these are not tuition-free credits.)

Interested students should submit a current resume by e-mail with attachment to Professor Suzanne Ehrenberg ( Please indicate on your resume the name of your first-year legal writing professor and the grades you received in the course.

Opportunity for students to do short-term volunteer work in immigration law

We are looking for students interested in working at the Midwest Immigrant and Human Rights Center and/or a law firm helping to process and work with immigrants who are rushing to take advantage of new immigration law. Students may have heard or read about a new law called the "LIFE" amendment that allows immigrants to apply for lawful permanent residence in the U.S. without having to leave the country. The deadline for filing applications under the law is April 30. There is a lot of work to be done.

Students will have an opportunity to spend as much or as little time working on this as they would like. Students who speak foreign languages are especially needed, but everyone is welcome. Students need not have any experience or classes in immigration law. Training will be provided.

Interested students should e-mail Professor Sonia Green at ( or call 312-906-5387.
