Looking to hire research assistants
Professor Bartram S. Brown is looking to hire research assistants to work on projects involving international criminal law and international human rights law. Students may work for pay or, in an appropriate case, for an independent study credit. Experience in research and writing about international law would be useful but is not required. You should, however, in general be a good researcher and writer, and a motivated self-starter willing to take on important responsibilities. Those interested should submit a résumé, a brief writing sample and a letter of introduction to Professor Brown’s administrative assistant, Nicole Lechuga, in room 823.
