Position Overview

The Shook Hardy & Bacon Scholars Program is a part of the Law School’s Academic Resources Program. Funding for this program comes from a grant from the law firm of Shook Hardy & Bacon.

Shook Hardy and Bacon Scholars will lead a structured study group during the fall semester for a small group of 1L students, including international students. The study group will focus either on students’ Torts or Civil Procedure class but will also help students generally as they learn about the U.S. legal system. Scholars will provide participants with a role model for successful law student study skills.


Job Description

  1. General Responsibilities – Scholars will be assigned a group of roughly five students. Scholars will not specifically be tutoring students but will instead be helping them find answers to their questions and modeling successful law student study skills.
  2. Attend Class – Scholars must attend either Professor Stacy’s Torts class, which meets MTW 9:15 – 10:10 and M 10:20 – 11:15, or Professor Kautsch’s Torts class, which meets MTW 1:35-2:30pm and W 2:40-3:35pm. You must be available to attend all four hours of class each week.
  3. Lead Weekly Study Group – Scholars will organize and lead an hour-long weekly study group for group participants.
  4. Attend Training – Scholars will meet at the beginning of the fall semester and periodically throughout the semester with the Director of Academic Resources for training, guidance, and instruction.

Required Qualifications

  1. Any KU Law student who is in good standing and will be enrolled as a third-year law student during the fall 2017 semester is eligible to apply.
  2. Scholars must attend either Professor Stacy’s Torts class, which meets MTW 9:15 – 10:10 and M 10:20 – 11:15, or Professor Kautsch’s Torts class, which meets MTW 1:35-2:30pm and W 2:40-3:35pm. You must be available to attend all four hours of class each week.

Preferred Qualifications

  1. Scholars will be selected, in part, on students’ demonstrated success in law school generally and in Torts or Civil Procedure specifically. Two or three students will be selected for the fall 2018 semester. Students selected for the fall semester will have the option to continue as Scholars in the Spring 2019 semester.

The letter should also include information about how to best reach you over the summer.

Review of applications begins on Thursday, April 19, 2018 and continues as needed to collect a pool of qualified applicants. To ensure consideration, apply before the application review date.

Scholars will be paid up to $1,500 for the semester at $14.00 an hour. Note that under law school rules students are not allowed to work more than 20 hours per week. Scholars generally work 6 - 10 hours each week.
