Law Research Assistant (RA) positions are primarily intended as learning experiences that contribute to the student's progress toward a program of study. RA positions are for a quarter-time appointment or 10 hours a week. RA positions are available with many faculty members only for second- and third-year students. If you are classified as a nonresident for tuition purposes, a quarter-time research assistant position (10 hours per week) will change your tuition status during that semester to resident tuition, thus altering your financial aid package.
