Description

Are you a law student, recent graduate, pre-law student, or paralegal student or graduate? Do you have some extra time? Would you like to use your skills in legal research and writing, and build your experience without leaving your home? If so, I would like to hear from you!

I am a professor of legal studies (undergraduate) and currently inactive attorney. Essentially, I am developing a small cadre of exceptional volunteers to help me with some of my current projects, and possibly others that come up in the future. Those with an interest in legal education, family law, education law, constitutional issues, alternative dispute resolution, or restorative justice may be especially interested. Current projects include contributing to something that could later be published, and helping to develop materials to be used in undergraduate legal courses.

To be clear, this unpaid opportunity is with me, personally, and not affiliated with any particular institution. This is a remote position, and as such requires regular communication either over the phone or online. Also, you must be able to work together as a team remotely with myself and others. My goal is to develop a core group of highly capable volunteers to assist me in my work, as my disability makes things difficult these days.

When you submit your resume, please also tell me a little about yourself, what you hope to gain from this experience, and what skills you bring. Also, please provide me with your LinkedIn. That is a must, and I will share mine as well if I decide to schedule an interview. I look forward to hearing from you!

Responsibilities

You will above all be a thought partner, aiding in brainstorming and collaborating on my projects, researching and reading various legal materials, condensing those materials into different forms, such as for course development purposes, or as part of a larger academic written work, maintaining regular communication with myself and working remotely with the rest of the team.

Requirements

Prior legal coursework, preferably legal experience, most definitely a passion for learning and for the law, also the ability to work both independently and as part of a team in a remote environment, as well as stick to deadlines.

Skills

Required - Law, Legal, Research, Writing, Communication, Teamwork, Legal Research, Legal Writing, Collaboration, LinkedIn, Telecommuting, Superior Computer Skills, Honesty
Preferred - PowerPoint development, Course Development, Academic Writing, Google Docs, Microsoft Word, Education Law, Family Law, Constitutional Law, Restorative Justice, Social Media Blogging, Social Media Communications, Teaching
