Teaching Assistants

Teaching Assistants are assigned to all first-year courses, including Legal Writing. TAs are selected from among Chicago-Kent's top upper-level students based on their overall performance in law school and in particular courses. TAs in first-year doctrinal courses hold weekly office hours and at least two seminars open to all students in the class.
