Harvard Law School’s Labor and Worklife Program in partnership with Jobs With Justice invites applications for appointment as a Future of Labor Law Research Fellow. Future of Labor Law Research Fellows are law students or recent law graduates with a commitment to expanding access to collective bargaining for working people and to reforming labor law. The Fellows will be placed with a campaign that forges new paths in giving working people opportunities to negotiate for improvements in their workplaces and in their communities. These on-the-ground campaigns will have an integral role in shaping the Clean Slate Project.
The program anticipates providing two, one-year full-time fellowships commencing in the winter 2019 and one half-time fellowship for the same time period. The fellowship stipend will be approximately $50,000 per year for the full-time fellows and $25,000 per year for the half-time fellow. It is expected that one of the fellowships will be in Portland, OR and another in Atlanta, GA, with the third to be determined.
A J.D. degree or enrollment in the third year of an American Bar Association-accredited law school is required. Previous labor law coursework, experience with organizing campaigns, and experience advocating on behalf of working people are not required but will be considered favorably.
