The Advocacy Program needs third year students with a demonstrated interest in trial advocacy to assist the Advocacy Instructors this upcoming Spring Semester. Litigation Associates are primarily used to critique student performances in making opening statements, closing statements, direct and cross-examinations, etc.
Litigation Associates will be used for at least 6 class sessions during the semester (Weeks 1, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12). Litigation Associates will be paid a flat fee of $250 per section. In addition to the obvious resume value of this position, Litigation Associates will work closely with our outstanding Advocacy faculty. You will be assigned to a specific section. If you would like to work two sections (and double your fee), please indicate so in your email.
Students who wish to apply should e-mail their resume, and the grade that they received in Advocacy, to Professor Corneill Stephens (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 5 p.m. on Friday, October 29th.
Please include a list of all the Advocacy sections you would be available to cover. The more sections you are available to cover, the greater the likelihood that we will find a place for you. The days and times for the Advocacy sections, along with the name of the Instructor, are posted on the Spring Schedule. It is anticipated that all Advocacy classes will be in person this Spring.
