Apply to work on a spring LIDS project!

LIDS is currently recruiting team members to work on its exciting array of spring projects! Project partners include the ABA Criminal Law Section’s International Committee, the Center for Civil Society in India, and the Collaborative African Genomics Network, among others. Descriptions of the projects are available here.

To be eligible to work on a LIDS project, you must be a current graduate student in the Boston area. Team members are expected to dedicate 3-5 hours per week on average to their project.

Team members are primarily responsible for preparing the deliverable, which may be a legal memo, policy report, or business plan, among other possibilities. This role involves research work, which can include conventional research and potentially interviewing individuals or experts on the subject matter. Being a team member is an excellent opportunity to work with an external development group and gain subject matter expertise and valuable employment skills. Expertise in the subject matter is not essential, but a demonstrated interest in the topic is expected, as is a commitment to the project. Research and writing skills are important for this position, as is an ability to work on a team and meet deadlines.

To apply:

(1) fill out the application form.

(2) attend the MANDATORY training on Mon., Feb. 3, 2014 from 7-8:30pm in WCC 2009. If you have a class or other legitimate conflict during that time, please email Sarah (sweiner@jd15.law.harvard.edu) and John (john.rennie@tufts.edu) so that they can send you the necessary information.

Applications are due TUESDAY, FEB. 4, 2014.

All projects described are Orrick, Herrington and Sutcliffe pro bono projects. LIDS members work on these projects under the supervision of Orrick’s attorneys.
