Careers in Law Teaching Program Lunchtime Workshop Series

Location Name JGH 103

INTRODUCTORY SESSION: THERE ARE MANY PATHS INTO LAW TEACHING, AND HOW MIGHT YOU START BLAZING ONE? The Introductory Session is intended to introduce Columbia students to the ins and outs, ups and downs, and whys and wherefores of an academic career. It is the first of a series of weekly lunch workshops held throughout the semester on the subject of academic careers.

At this session, Professors Carter, Cleveland and Strauss will provide an overview of the mechanics of going on the market as well as a discussion of what teaching is like, why we do it, and why you might want to consider it too. All students who are interested in teaching, or students who think they might be in the future, are encouraged to attend. There will be plenty of time for questions.
