Diane Rosenfeld is accepting RA applications for work on the Gender Violence, Law and Social Justice course next semester, as well as more general research related to a writing project. Interested applicants should send a CV and short statement of interest. Work can begin over January continuing into the Spring. Residence in Cambridge over the term is helpful but not required. Please send CVs and statements of interest to her assistant, Steven Trothen at strothen at law.harvard.edu.
A reminder that Wednesday, January 9, 2013 is the deadline for current 2Ls to apply to spend the 2012-2013 academic year at the University of Cambridge, under the HLS-Cambridge joint degree program. Students selected for the program spend their 3L year in Cambridge and are eligible to receive the Cambridge LL.M. at the end of the year upon successfully completing all LL.M. degree requirements. Students also simultaneously receive a semester’s credit toward their HLS J.D. This means that with one additional semester back at Harvard after their Cambridge study (i.e., a total of 3.5 academic years), they will have earned both a Harvard J.D. and a Cambridge LL.M. The HLS students are the only LL.M. students at Cambridge who are not required to have a J.D. or equivalent degree prior to enrollment. For detailed information on the program and application instructions, please visit our Harvard Law School and University of Cambridge J.D./LL.M. Joint Degree Program web page at http://www.law.harvard.edu/academics/deg… .
There is no reading assignment for the first class. A syllabus is available on the course web-site. The coursebook is Stone et al., The First Amendment (4th ed. 2012).
