Are you a rising 2L or 3L? Do you have excellent legal and scholarly research skills? If so, please consider applying for a part- time position as a Law Library Research Assistant for the summer.

The Law Library is hiring several research assistants to work on a variety of research projects for the Law School administration, faculty, and the library. The RAs will be assigned as a pool to work on projects assigned by the reference librarians that are received from faculty. Projects may encompass a wide variety of legal topics and may extend into related subjects (e.g., economics, history). Likely types of assignments may include compiling bibliographies, literature reviews, legislative histories, cite checking, and drafting memoranda to faculty.

This year, the pool worked on projects for close to twenty faculty members! So it’s a great way to develop research skills and get a broad experience on a wide variety of legal topics.

Candidates should have excellent research and writing skills, attention to detail, and a strong work ethic. Students who majored in history or other subjects in which they performed significant research and scholarly writing are preferred.

Successful students hired for the summer may be offered further employment opportunities for the fall & spring semesters.

This is a paid position for rising 2L and 3L students capable of working approximately 10-20 hours per week. Applications can be made through Simplicity or emailed directly to Prof. Zarin.
