The Criminal Justice Policy Program is a research and advocacy center based at HLS. CJPP is hiring current HLS students as research assistants to work on a project advising a major U.S. city on the best practices for reforming its money bail system. The work will involve interviews with reform advocates and government officials, legal research, writing, and editing. This is a great opportunity for students interested in policy work, pretrial justice, and the process of achieving criminal justice reform. Most of the work will happen in January and February. Research assistants are not required to be on campus during the January term and can work remotely.

The research assistants will work directly with Visiting Senior Fellow, Chiraag Bains, and Legal Fellow, Colin Doyle, with oversight from Executive Director, Brook Hopkins, and Professors Carol Steiker and Alex Whiting.

Interested students should send a short email explaining their interest in the project as soon as possible to
