EELP regularly hires research assistants to work closely with our attorneys on a variety of topics in environmental and energy law. Students may help us track and analyze federal regulatory developments, research legal issues related to sea level rise, or work on research related to how the private sector is responding to climate change, among other topics. Students may prepare internal research memos and also have opportunities to contribute to publications or blogs on the topics they research. Read about the work of some of our current and former RA’s in Harvard Law Today.
If you are an HLS student and interested in working as an RA for EELP, please email Program Administrator Selena Wallace at [email protected]
