The Law School’s Center for Criminal Justice and Professional Responsibility is seeking at least two students to work for the Center over the summer break, working on actual cases of wrongful convictions with Professors Jim Coleman and Theresa Newman and Center supervising attorney Jamie Lau. Experience in this kind of work—as members of Duke Law’s Innocence Project or Wrongful Convictions Clinic, or in some other venue—would be helpful but is not essential. The summer staffers will be expected to work full-time for at least ten weeks over the summer, but start/end dates are negotiable and other arrangements may be possible. Compensation is at the standard hourly rate for research assistants.
If you are interested, please send a short statement of interest (no more than 100 words) and a copy of your resume to Jamie Lau at email@example.com no later than Monday March 11, the first day of spring break. We hope to conduct interviews after spring break and make a decision no later than the end of March.
