Graduate assistantships

There are no graduate assistantships available to law students. However, the law library and some of our law professors employ a limited number of upper-division students as part-time research assistants.

If you are a student in a joint degree program, you are eligible to apply for a graduate assistantship in the department in which you are enrolled for Master’s degree work. Graduate assistantships are only available to law students who have finished their first year of law school. They typically range in value from a few thousand dollars to full tuition for graduate and law tuition, plus a living stipend.
