Associates-in-Law who are pursuing the LL.M. or J.S.D. degree are registered for L6823 for ten points in the fall semester of each year that they are serving as an Associate. The Associates are required to attend all sessions of the lectures presented by Columbia faculty during the "intensive phase" of the legal methods courses offered to first-year J.D. candidates (Legal Methods) and to civil law LL.M. candidates (Comparative Introduction to American Law). The intensive period lasts for three weeks, during which lectures are generally given for two to three hours per day. LL.M./J.S.D. Associates hold section meetings for smaller groups during the intensive period, explaining concepts in greater detail and responding to student questions; they assign, correct and discuss one-on-one with students various research and writing assignments. They continue the students' legal methods instruction after the intensive period by presenting a weekly two-hour research and writing seminar that involves continued one-on-one interaction with students.
Open only to Associates pursuing the LL.M. or J.S.D. degree. Graded CR (credit) or F (failure).
