Week One Teaching Fellows (formerly Global Teaching Fellows)
J.D. Course 610 | 1 credit hours
Week One Teaching Fellows work with faculty to facilitate the first-year Week One courses and receive one pass/fail credit. In the Fall semester, fellows meet with their faculty to review the course topic, goals, and simulation structure, and to receive training on their role. There will be related assignments during the Fall semester. During the course itself, fellows attend all of the classroom sessions and assist in facilitating discussion and small-group work of first-year students. For example, fellows may moot students as they prepare for a mock oral argument or client presentation, or play the witness in a key witness interview. Fellows also meet and consult regularly with faculty during the course to discuss student progress and course logistics. All fellows complete a 6-8 page reaction paper assessing how the course worked, overall student experience, and how the course could be improved (legal issues, factual issues, structure of exercise, etc.).
Students who are enrolled in a Spring semester clinic should determine when any clinical meetings will take place during Week One to ensure there will be no conflict with their responsibilities as a fellow.
THIS COURSE REQUIRES PROFESSOR PERMISSION TO ENROLL. Interested students should upload a resume and one-page statement of interest to the Box folder here, by September 6, 2016. If a student wishes to work with a particular professor or Week One course, they should indicate this in their statement of interest. First-year Week One courses are currently being scheduled and will be posted in the Curriculum Guide during Summer 2016.
