    Impact of school disciplinary action?

    I'm not saying I'll be dishonest. I did disclose this incident on the Columbia app and they overlooked it. I'm just wondering if they'd discover this somehow.

    Impact of school disciplinary action?

    Wouldn't FERPA protect educational records though?

    Impact of school disciplinary action?

    At one of my previous institutions, I faced disciplinary action (behavioral, not plagiarism/cheating). I applied to and was accepted to grad school for the fall 2018, but I was permitted to defer to fall 2019. I was asked about disciplinary actions on the application and disclosed my history. What impact, if any, would this have on my academic life or career later on? Is it necessary to tell this to an adviser? I have no criminal record whatsoever, just a scholastic rapsheet, FWIW. Would employers ever find out about this?

    Careers at the UN?

    I emailed Career Services at Columbia. They offer funding for unpaid summer internships for undergrads but not grad students. 😡

    Careers at the UN?

    Wow, that sucks. I don't think I could do it without funding. 😐

    Are the UN internships paid?

    Careers at the UN?

    I'm thinking like Policy Analyst positions. I'm particularly interested in UNICEF, UNESCO, UNHCR, and UN Women. What kind of background would be ideal? Is prestige (school rank, grades) important for hiring? I am fluent in Spanish and Hindi, FWIW, and have international work experience.

    Careers in Legal Academia?

    Thanks! That seems like a more realistic goal (after several years of practice, that is) than TT prof positions at law schools.

    MA in law or philosophy?

    Philosophy of Law as the area of study?

    Given your goals, it is imperative for you to attend a top 14 law school, HYS in particular. (Though Columbia and U of Chicago are also solid options for academia).

    OP, many SJD programs require having a JD first.

    Careers in Legal Academia?

    Thanks! I am interested in non-tenure track positions (i.e. teaching in clinics or skills based courses)...is hiring for these less prestige-obsessed?

    Columbia LLM/JSD

    Did anyone here apply to this program?

    Berkeley JSP program

    OP, were you accepted to this program?

    Careers in Legal Academia?

    I'm a recent JD grad, currently clerking for a judge (two years). Legal academia, particularly clinical legal teaching, would be my dream job. Would getting an L.L.M./Ph.D./S.J.D. in law help towards obtaining such a position?I was an OK but not great student in my JD program, and I know that hiring for academia can be very elitist.
