Research Assistant

Jill Goldenziel (Lecturer, Harvard College and BU Law), and Professors Richard Holden and Rosalind Dixon (University of New South Wales) are looking to hire 2 or more HLS student research assistants. Work can be completed over Spring Break or during the course of the semester. Their project studies whether judges are more likely to be activist or exercise restraint when it is easier to override them. It will use US state constitutions and judicial decisions as a “laboratory” for analyzing this issue. Successful applicants will be involved in reading and coding state appellate court decisions to identify when courts invalidate legislation for inconsistency with relevant state constitutions. We encourage applications from law students with a background and interest in constitutional law and/or US politics/government. Prior research experience in economics, political science, or related fields may be helpful, but is not required. Those interested should e-mail  jgolden at fas.harvard.edu ASAP with a brief statement of interest in the body of the e-mail, a CV, and the names of 2 references.
