Apply to lead a Spring 2014 LIDS Project!
LIDS is currently recruiting team leaders to work on its eight exciting projects! Project partners for the spring include the World Resources Institute, the Public International Law & Policy Group, and Qorax Energy, among others. Descriptions of the projects are available here.
To be eligible to lead a LIDS project, you must be a current graduate student in the Boston area. Team leaders are expected to dedicate 5-7 hours per week to their project.
Team leaders are primarily responsible for managing their project. This role involves liaising with the client and an Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe attorney assigned to the project, communicating frequently with team members, running weekly or bi-weekly team meetings, and ensuring that the final product is of high quality. Leadership, communications skills, and an ability to manage a team are important skills for this role. Expertise in the subject matter, while helpful, is not essential, but a demonstrated interest in the topic is expected. Past leaders have found this experience incredibly rewarding and a lot of fun!
(1) fill out the application form.

Applications are due MONDAY, JAN. 27, 2014 at 7 PM.
All projects described are Orrick, Herrington and Sutcliffe pro bono projects. LIDS members work on these projects under the supervision of Orrick’s attorneys.
