Seeking Law Clerks -The American Bar Association’s Death Penalty Moratorium Implementation Project

November 2, 2011

The American Bar Association’s Death Penalty Moratorium Implementation Project is seeking two to four outstanding law clerks – 12 – 15 hours per week–  to support the Project’s work over the 2012 Spring semester and two to four law clerks for summer 2012 to assist in the completion of national publications.   The law clerks will be primarily responsible for assisting in the final production of the State Assessment Reports. This allows law students to have the opportunity to edit, proofread, and fact check a national publication, with name recognition in the Acknowledgments. Law clerks will conduct legal and factual research, and draft sections of the ongoing  Missouri,Texas and Virginia Reports, where needed. In addition, law clerks are encouraged to attend and participate in Project meetings as well as meetings of the ABA’s Section of Individual Rights and Responsibilities, in which the Project is housed. Attendance at death penalty-related hearings, conferences, and/or oral arguments is encouraged, when available. Summer clerks should be available 37.5 hours per week.  Please send a cover letter and resume to paula.shapiro@americanbar.org indicating your interest in one or both positions.
