Student Employment ⇑
Many of the Law School's adjunct professors are practitioners or have current or recent ties to the practitioner community. Students frequently benefit from discussions with adjunct professors about career options. This is one of the many ways in which the adjunct faculty serves as a valuable function to the student body. If you become aware of employment opportunities or are yourself in a position to offer employment to a Fordham Law student, please contact the Career Planning Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or post a job in the Online Job Bank at http://law.fordham.edu/postajob. Each May, the adjunct faculty is also invited to volunteer to become an Adjunct Professor Advisor to a graduating J.D. student.
If you consult with students, particularly to the extent you are in a position to guide or recommend for employment only certain members of your class, please consider whether it may be appropriate to wait until the semester concludes and grades for the class have been submitted, so as to ensure parity amongst all students.
Please keep in mind that a Day Divison student may not be employed more than 20 hours per week in any semester in which the student in enrolled in more than 12 credits. Full-time students must sign a statement to this effect everytime they register, and students who violate this regulation are subject to disciplinary action.
