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.
