Legal Rhetoric Dean's Fellows
The Legal Rhetoric Program employs nearly 50 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.
Writing Fellows offer one-on-one meetings with students needing extra assistance with writing and research assignments.
Research Fellows work with full-time Rhetoric faculty on problem development andall aspects of the research curriculum. Research Fellows have regularly-scheduledoffice hours for 1Ls during periods of peak demand.
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.
