Law Students, Apply For The Harlan Institute Fellowship

July 20th, 2011

The Harlan Institute is accepting applications for our Fellowship Program for the October 2011 Term.

Fellows will have the following responsibilities:

  • Manage database following new cert grants, oral arguments, and opinion hand-down;
  • Update lesson plans to reflect new developments in the Supreme Court Term;
  • Mentor High School students through HARLANconnect;
  • Engage the Harlan Institute’s social media presence through our blog, Twitter, and Facebook;
  • Work with Board of Directors to help grow FantasySCOTUS and our educational platform.

We are looking for law students who are in their second or third year of law school, have finished (and enjoyed!) constitutional law, and closely follow the Supreme Court term.  The fellowship would begin in August of 2011 and conclude following the conclusion of the October 2011 Term (roughly the last week in June 2012).

The time commitment is light, and is quite flexible with any law school schedule (maybe an hour or two a week that can be done at your convenience). Fellowships can be performed virtually, and there is no requirement that applicants live in the Washington, D.C. area. The Fellowship is unpaid, but I assure you, the experience and networking opportunities will make it well worth your while; in the past two years, several interns who excelled were elevated to our Board of Directors.

If you are interested, please send a resume and a writing sample to [email protected]. If your application is selected, you will receive a brief telephone interview.
