1. How do I become a Marquette Law School student employee?
Many students work for Marquette University during their tenure at the Law School. The majority of these students become employed as paid research assistants for members of the full-time law faculty. Please contact individual faculty members to inquire about research assistantships. Current opportunities are also posted in the Law News bundled e-announcements, regularly circulated to the Law School community.
The Law School also posts many employment opportunities open to all Marquette students on JobConnection, so please check back frequently!
2. What if I am not currently a Marquette student, but I am interested in these job opportunities?
Student employment opportunities with the Law School are only available to current Marquette students. However, if you would like to explore other employment opportunities with Marquette, please check out our career site.
3. I've been selected for a student employment opportunity with the Law School, now what?
Once you have been selected for a student employment opportunity with the Law School, you may request payment authorization from the University. Please stop by Room 238 of the Law School to complete the hiring process.
In accordance with University policy, a student must complete all payroll paperwork and be fully authorized for employment by the University prior to beginning any work for Marquette.
4. How will I know when I've completed the hiring process and am approved to begin working?
We will tell you, so please be sure to stop by Room 238 before you begin any work.
Once authorized, a student employee may begin to track hours and submit time sheets for payment. Student pay checks are issued on a bi-weekly basis and are deposited directly into an account designated by the employee.
Student Employment Authorization Process (please stop by Room 238 to complete):
- Complete a Salary Authorization Request
- Complete a W-4
- Submit your Direct Deposit information on CheckMarq
- Complete a Form I-9 (don't forget your two forms of identification!)
5. Where can I find copies of the time sheet and payroll schedule?
Hard copies of these items can be obtained in Room 238 of the Law School. Electronic copies are right here:
6. What is the correct way to fill out my time sheet?
Please complete all of the highlighted portions of the time sheet and obtain a supervisor signature before you submit a time sheet for payment. Please record and total your time in quarter hour intervals (.25, .50, .75, 1.0, etc.). Please submit one time sheet, on time, for every pay period work is performed in. Please do not combine multiple pay periods on to one time sheet, and please try to be punctual with your time sheet submissions. (Tardy time sheets will be processed with the next pay period, with a delay in payment.) All completed time sheets should be submitted to Room 238 of the Law School on a biweekly basis, per the linked payroll schedule. Please note, overtime is not permitted.
7. How many hours may I work?
Students may work up to 20 hours per week during regular class terms (fall and spring terms) and up to 40 hours per week during breaks and summer terms. Overtime is not permitted. PLEASE NOTE: Research assistants often have special hours restrictions. Please discuss these restrictions directly with your supervising professor.
For further information, please refer to:
8. What if I have more than one paid position with Marquette?
If a student has more than one paid position at Marquette University, all wages will be issued as one bi-weekly payment from Marquette. Since the University combines your hours and wages, please be careful not to exceed your total allotted hours (see #7).
9. Where can I print a pay stub or view my payroll information?
You may access your payroll information on MyJob. This includes pay stubs, W-2s, hour accruals, and wage information.
10. I am a current employee who needs to be reauthorized to continue my employment with the Law School. What do I do?
Reauthorization for your employment term happens twice per year: 1) at the start of the academic year, and 2) at the start of the summer term. If you need to be reauthorized to continue your employment with the Law School, you can do so quickly and easily, by submitting your request for reauthorization online.
Please note, if you do not submit a reauthorization request, we will not know to rehire you when an employment term ends. Delays in payment due to automatic termination in our payroll system will likely occur.
11. Am I permitted to keep working after I graduate?
Student employees may not work beyond graduation, though, in certain cases, a graduate may receive special authorization to continue research as a temporary Marquette employee. Students seeking this option are advised to stop by Room 238 of the Law School to obtain more information.
12. I am currently a paid research assistant. How do I set up my printing rights?
