Professor Deborah Anker, Clinical Professor of Law and Founder of the Harvard Immigration and Refugee Clinic, is seeking research assistants to work on the newest edition of her treatise, Law of Asylum in the United States.
The treatise is updated yearly and is a leading resource on U.S. asylum law. This is a great opportunity for students to perfect their legal research and writing skills and develop a deep understanding of U.S. and international asylum law. The position will take place during the summer and during the fall semester, with an orientation session after spring semester exams.
During the summer, research assistants work remotely for approximately 5-10 hours per week. During the fall semester, research assistants work for approximately 10 hours per week.
The ideal research assistant will have a strong interest in asylum law, have strong time management skills, and be able to work independently. Current 1Ls are encouraged to apply. Interested students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible, but no later than April 30th, by submitting a resume and a short paragraph stating their interest. Please also include in your paragraph whether you are interested in a paid position or writing credit. All materials can be emailed to Sophie Jean at
