LL.M. Teaching Fellows Program

The LL.M. Teaching Fellows Program allows select, highly-qualified graduates of Fordham’s LL.M. program to teach a course at the Law School during one semester shortly after completion of his or her LL.M. studies.

Qualified applicants may apply for the LL.M. Teaching Fellows position by submitting (1) a resume or curriculum vitae; (2) a Fordham Law School transcript (unofficial is sufficient); (3) the names of at least two members of the Law School’s full-time faculty who can speak to the student’s abilities and teaching potential; and (4) a detailed course proposal and syllabus.  Application materials may be sent to Dean Fine at tfine@law.fordham.edu.  Applications for the fall semester are due by February 1.  Applications for the spring semester are due by September 15.
