Temp. Job with HLS Corporate Governance Program

We are looking to immediately hire someone to review and classify publications related to corporate governance and financial regulation. These materials come from a wide variety of prominent academics, government officials and practitioners. These publications take the form of blog posts on the HLS Forum on Corporate Governance and Financial Regulation (http://blogs.law.harvard.edu/corpgov/). No experience with blog publishing or corporate law is required; this job would be an excellent opportunity to gain exposure to each. The work can be done from home, after a brief in-person orientation. The position will last through the end of June.

Those interested can e-mail Matthew McCabe at mmccabe@law.harvard.edu.

HLPR – Call for Student Submissions

The Harvard Law & Policy Review (HLPR), the official law journal of ACS, is currently seeking submissions for its student writing section. HLPR is dedicated to providing a forum for substantive debate among progressive legal scholars, policymakers and practitioners.

The student essays provide unique opportunities for law students to publish their work in a high-level academic forum that goes to more than 6,000 leading lawyers nationwide, as well as to congressional offices and other progressive decision makers.

As we put together our 5th volume of HLPR, we are seeking outstanding student writing from a diverse array of law schools. These pieces should be more policy oriented than traditional legal writing, shorter in length (4,000-5,000 words after the editing process) and generally contain fewer footnotes.

Deadline for submissions for the Fall 2010 issue is Wednesday, June 16.

All submissions can be made to  hlpr at law.harvard.edu or to  jsaulino at jd10.law.harvard.edu.

We look forward to your submissions.  Please let us know if you have any questions.
