SEEKING DEAN’S FELLOWS FOR 2017-2018

The Integrated Curriculum (IC) program is now accepting applications from students interested in serving as IC Dean’s Fellows for the 2017-2018 academic year.  The goal of the IC program is to help 1L students identify and explore the connections between their doctrinal courses.  The approach is inspired by the recognition that real client problems almost never concern just one area of law, but instead require lawyers to use knowledge from several, interrelated areas of law. 

The IC Dean’s Fellows are a team of upper level students who assume two different roles as part of this program.  Dean’s Fellows assist first year professors in organizing IC events and panels for 1L students on topics ranging from outlining to the current Supreme Court docket.  Importantly, the IC Dean’s Fellows are also available to first year students for support, advice and mentoring.  Please note that this position requires a two-year commitment.  Students are paid for 10 hours/week at the WCL Dean’s Fellow rate. 

Application Process

If you are interested in being considered for an IC Dean’s Fellow position, submit a copy of your resume, cover letter, and transcript (unofficial is fine), in PDF format to the Sr. Administrative Dean’s Fellow, Megan Glaub at mg2927a@student.american.edu.  Please include your current 1L section number in your cover letter. 

Applications are due on Wednesday, February 22, 2017 by 5:00pm.

Interviews

Selected applicants will be contacted for interviews. Applicants will be interviewed by the current group of IC Dean’s Fellows. Second round interviews are conducted by the director of the IC program, Professor Andrew Popper.
