Student Work

We’re currently hiring HLS students as research assistants to work on several of our projects. Many students help us keep our Regulatory Rollback Tracker updated, or provide research assistance for our Private Sector Governance and State and Local Climate Strategies projects, and for our Electricity Law Initiative. We also support students’ original research projects and often publish their work as blogs and even invite them to appear on our podcast.

If you’re an HLS student and are interested in being a Research Assistant with us please email us or stop by our offices in WCC 4119 to find out more.

Below are some examples of recent student work.

We also post fellowships for HLS students. Click here to see what you can apply for right now.

Regulatory Rollback Tracker

Students wrote or helped to write many of our rollback tracker posts, including Greater Sage-Grouse Protection and their Amended Resource Management Plans, Energy Conservation Standards for Consumer Products, Publicly Owned Treatment Works Hazardous Air Pollutant Standards, Agricultural Worker Protection Standard, Certification of Pesticide Applicators, Brick and Tile National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants, New Source Review, Petroleum Refinery Sector Rule, National Petroleum Reserve Oil and Gas Development, Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act Air Release Reporting, Hydrofluorocarbons and the Refrigerant Management, Arctic National Wildlife Refuge Oil and Gas Development, National Ocean Policy Executive Order, NEPA Environmental Review Requirements, Regional Haze Rule and State Implementation Plans, Migratory Bird Treaty Act, Keystone XL Pipeline, and many more.

They also help to keep most of them updated as lawsuits are brought and decided or agencies take further action.
