The Center on Reproductive Rights and Justice (CRRJ) advances scholarly discourse, bolsters advocacy efforts, and influences public opinion through innovative socio-legal research, scholarship, teaching, and convenings. CRRJ is dedicated to the pursuit of reproductive justice, maintaining that all people deserve the social, financial, political, and legal conditions required to make genuine choices about reproduction – choices that must be respected, supported, and treated with dignity. We are particularly concerned about advancing the position of marginalized populations whose reproduction has been forced, denied, or exploited. The rights to have children, not to have children, and to parent children are of an intimate, fundamental nature and ought to be accessible to all.
CRRJ is currently seeking a law student to work for approximately 10 hours per week from August 2014 to May 2015. The student will contribute to multiple ongoing projects, including indexing content for a comprehensive teaching textbook; reading scholarly articles and writing annotations for an interactive, virtual bibliography; and researching, reading, excerpting, and summarizing cases and articles for ongoing writing projects.
Qualifications include: at least one year of law school, familiarity with reproductive rights law and justice, strong written and oral communication skills, excellent research skills, task management, and self-guidance. Workstudy funding would be ideal, but not required.
To apply for the position, please forward a resume, cover letter, and references to Elaine Mui, Center Administrator at email@example.com.
