EELP regularly hires student research assistants (RAs) to work closely with our attorneys on a variety of environmental and energy law projects. A self-selected and mission-driven group, the RAs are valued members of our team who help us to track and analyze federal regulatory developments and research complex legal and policy issues. Students often have opportunities to prepare internal research memos and contribute to publications or blogs on the topics they research. In many cases we are able to tailor research assignments to fit each student’s interests and career goals, providing them with hands-on training. RAs can also benefit from our guidance on the law school experience and post-graduation plans. Read about the work of some of our current and former RAs in Harvard Law Today.
If you are an HLS student and interested in working as an RA for EELP, please email Program Administrator Sara Levy at [email protected].
