Please view the Web Registration Instruction Worksheet

Before you begin the registration process:

  • Confirm your Registration Time Ticket (registration date and time) by selecting academic profile. Make sure to choose the semester you are registering for.

FALL 2024
SPECIAL REGISTRATION INFORMATION


ACCOUNTING FOR LAWYERS AND BUSINESS BASICS

BANKRUPTCY COURSES

JD students interested in registering for Bankruptcy courses should contact Laura Schwartz at [email protected] or Margie Townsend at [email protected]. Student will be manually registered.

LEADERSHIP FOR LAWYERS (New Course)

Given the special role lawyers play as leaders throughout society, this course will focus on the character, skills, and competencies of successful leaders. Throughout the course students will learn how to set attainable goals, give and receive feedback, communicate effectively in writing and verbally, resolve disputes, and effectively organize projects. This course will also cover developing and applying cultural intelligence and humility when representing clients or engaging in policy advocacy. Further, the course will cover the application of ethical and professional obligations when making decisions and advancing interests.

RESEARCH AND WRITING: REAL PROPERTY LAW

This course is open to second year (or part-time third year) J.D. students, and LL.M. students, who are staff members of the N.Y. Real Property Law Journal. Students will be manually registered.
 

SELECT TOPICS IN LAW AND TECHNOLOGY: AI AND ETHICS (New Course)

This course will explore the ethical considerations surrounding the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in the legal field. Through a combination of lectures, case studies, and discussions, students will examine the ethical implications associated with the use/non-use of AI technology in the legal field. The course will address ethical theories, regulatory frameworks, and the practical challenges of integrating AI into legal practices responsibly.

STREET LAW: LEGAL EDUCATION IN THE COMMUNITY (Seminar/Placement)

The Street Law Program provides students with the exciting opportunity to teach a practical law course on subjects such as constitutional law, torts, and family law to high school students at John Bowne High School in Flushing, New York. While serving the community, students will develop practical legal knowledge, professional responsibility, and important lawyering skills.

The Details

•    The Street Law Program has a seminar and a placement component. For Fall 2024, the seminar will meet on Tuesdays from 11:10 a.m. – 1:10 p.m.
•    Students receive 1 pass/fail credit for teaching to the high school students and 2 letter-grade credits for their seminar work.
•    Students prepare, research, and design their own lesson plans.
•    Students teach one lesson and observe a classmate teach one lesson each week.

•    In total, students visit the high school twice a week for approximately one hour each time. The high school classes run Monday through Friday. By way of example, last fall, students taught eighth and ninth periods (1:20 – 2:04 p.m., and 2:07– 2:51 p.m., respectively). But note that specific class times are not finalized until late summer. I will solicit preferences for teaching days and times after enrollment in the program.

•    Students are responsible for their own transportation to the high School, which is located at 63-25 Main Street, Flushing, NY. It is only a few miles from the law school accessible by car and public transportation.
Enrollment Process

Students interested in participating in the Street Law Program should email a short statement describing their interest and qualifications to Professor Montana at [email protected]. No prior teaching experience is required. No minimum GPA is required. Students will be accepted on a rolling basis.
