Journal on Legislation–Submit Student Writing Pieces

Harvard’s Journal on Legislation is looking for student-written pieces to feature in its upcoming fall/winter issue. We prefer pieces that interact with a particular concrete bill or statute, or make a detailed legislative proposal. The pieces should relate to bills or statutes that are both significant and current. Submissions are due by TUESDAY, AUGUST 13 to and any questions can be directed to  jtannen at jd15.law.harvard.edu. See below for more information. —– What are you looking for? (1) Recent Developments: We’re especially interested in student-written Recent Developments (RDs) on significant recently enacted legislation or a recently introduced legislative proposal. We’ve published RDs as short as eight journal pages and as long as thirty. The motivating audience of RDs (and of the journal as a whole) is members and staff of Congress, so you should write with that audience in mind. We would like to publish RDs that contain both a descriptive element and an argument of some kind. The descriptive section would most likely include a summary of the bill/statute’s major provisions and also something about its legislative history. The argument could be either a policy argument or a legal argument. (2) Notes: Notes are typically longer pieces that focus on a somewhat broader topic, but still address a concrete piece of legislation or make a concrete legislative proposal. Notes often begin their lives as writing projects or papers written for classes or credit.

Shareholder Rights Project Openings

Are you planning on working in corporate law? Interested in getting clinical experience working on corporate law and corporate governance matters? The Shareholder Rights Project is seeking participants for its 2013-2014 clinical program. The Shareholder Rights program, taught by Professor Lucian Bebchuk and Scott Hirst, provides students with the opportunity to obtain hands-on experience with shareholder rights work. The SRP works on behalf of public pension funds and charitable organizations seeking to improve corporate governance at publicly traded companies in which they are shareowners, as well as on research and policy projects related to corporate governance. Enrollment requires an application process and is open to Harvard Law School 2L, 3L and LLM students who have taken Corporations or are taking Corporations in the Fall term. LLM students with prior corporate experience may speak with the instructor about waiving this requirement. To apply, students must submit a statement of interest (maximum 200 words), a resume, an academic transcript (unofficial or official), and can elect to submit a writing sample of no more than 15 pages (one sample only). Applications should be addressed to the instructors and submitted to Emily Lewis at  emlewis at law.harvard.edu. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, and interested students are encouraged to apply as early as possible. For questions, please contact Emily Lewis, the Administrative Director of the Shareholder Rights Program at  emlewis at law.harvard.edu.
