Help Wanted: Library RAs for Spring 2008!

The Law Library is seeking applicants for the Faculty Research Assistants Program. This program gives you the chance to build relationships with a variety of Law School faculty members while you polish your legal research skills and provide valuable assistance to the faculty on short-term research projects. Past Library RA projects have included: updating an AIDS Law textbook and other course materials, developing biographical sketches of significant figures in legal history, and helping the Law School clinics prepare for planned litigation.

Library RA applicants must have successfully completed LARW, and be willing to commit 8-10 hours per week during the spring 2008 semester (January 9-April 16). If hired, your schedule would consist of 4-6 regularly established “office hours”, with the remainder as flexible “research time”. Starting Faculty RAs are paid $10.50/hour.

If you are interested in becoming a Library RA, please forward a resume and cover letter to Lauren Collins, Reference Librarian, at Be sure to include any special research skills (e.g., foreign language comprehension or research experience in non-legal disciplines). Priority will be given to applications received before December 1.
