Fellowship – NYU Law Civil Jury Project

April 19, 2016

The Civil Jury Project at NYU Law School is opening a position for a one-year fellowship.  The Project is currently undertaking research on the role of the civil jury.  In its first year, the Project held a conference at NYU on the current use of jury trials and hosted Justice Sotomayor for a discussion of that theme.  This fall the Project will host a conference on the role of juries in patent disputes.  The Project is also sponsoring empirical research on trial innovations and jury capabilities.

The Fellowship offers an opportunity for a year of research on topics related to civil jury trials.  It pays competitively and all benefits.  The Fellow is expected to assist in the work of the project and help oversee empirical and other research, as well as to help generate materials for the Project.

Ideally, fellows will be top graduates looking for a year between clerkships or before starting a clerkship.  Any interested candidates should write to:

amy.wright-parra@nyu.edu and should include a cover letter and résumé.  Please write Research Fellow for The Civil Jury Project at NYU School of Law in the subject line of the email.
