Shook Hardy & Bacon Scholar Student Hourly/Work Study
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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Lead Weekly Study Group – Scholars will organize and lead an hour-long weekly study group for group participants.
- 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.

- 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.
