Fordham Law School Announces LL.M. Teaching Fellow Program

December 02, 2009

Fordham Law School has introduced an LL.M. Teaching Fellow Program, which will begin in fall 2010. Fellows will be selected from graduates of the law school’s LL.M., or Master of Laws, program to teach a one-semester course after completion of their studies. 

The highly selective fellowships will be awarded to graduates of Fordham Law’s LL.M. program.  Successful candidates will have received outstanding grades during their LL.M. studies, have outstanding written and spoken English-language skills, and present a well-developed course proposal.

LL.M. Teaching Fellows are expected to teach a two-credit seminar. They will receive a small stipend and have access to faculty support services.

Toni M. Fine, Assistant Dean for International and Non-J.D. Programs, said, “The Fellows Program will provide select LL.M. graduates with U.S. law school teaching experience and, at the same time, enhance our curriculum for all students.”

Requirements for application include (1) a resume or curriculum vitae; (2) a Fordham Law School grade sheet; (3) the names of at least two members of the Law School’s full-time faculty who can speak to the student’s abilities and teaching potential; and (4) a detailed course proposal. Materials may be e-mailed to Assistant Dean Toni M. Fine. Applications for the fall semester are due by February 1.  Applications for the spring semester are due by September 1.
