Dean's Fellows

The Legal Rhetoric Program employs more than 45 student Dean's Fellows, who act in a variety of capacities:

Classroom Fellows are attached to a specific Legal Rhetoric section. Fellows attend and assist the instructor in all the class sessions. They prepare short presentations on citation rules and writing strategies for each class and meet with individual students outside of class to provide one-on-one help with assignments.

Rhetoric Writing Fellows offer one-on-one meetings with students needing extra assistance with writing and research assignments.

Research Fellows work with Legal Rhetoric faculty to develop assignments, classroom teaching materials, and the Research and Citation Competency Exam.

Committed to mentoring the best student teachers, the Legal Rhetoric Program is fortunate to have a dedicated and truly exceptional group of Dean's Fellows.


Myers Society Distinguished Fellows

Recognized for their outstanding contributions to the Rhetoric Program, each Myers Dean's Fellow plays a leadership role in mentoring new and returning Dean's Fellows, assisting with Dean's Fellow training; vetting the Research, Citation, and Writing Strategy Exam; acting as leaders in research lecture break-out sessions; and assisting the Program in other ways as called on by the full-time faculty (such as subbing for a Dean's Fellow who cannot be in class on a certain day).
