Are you a lawyer interested in dealing with emerging legal issues related to law, journalism, and new media on the Internet? Would you like to help online journalism and new media ventures meet their legal needs? Do you want a stimulating yet laid back work environment?
The Citizen Media Law Project (soon to be renamed the Digital Media Law Project) at Harvard University's Berkman Center for Internet & Society is looking to hire an Assistant Project Director/Program Fellow commencing in early 2011 to assist with the project's work.
The position requires a Juris Doctor degree with admission to at least one state bar and a minimum of 3 years of legal-practice experience with a significant Internet, intellectual property, or media law focus. Previous experience advising clients on non-profit formation or operation is advantageous. Our offices are located at the Berkman Center at Harvard Law School, so you must be willing to work in Cambridge, MA.
We're really excited about this position and about bringing someone new on board to help with our work and supervise and mentor the project's staff attorneys and student interns. It's a great opportunity for experienced media, Internet, or IP law practitioners who want to serve the public interest, transition to academic pursuits, or simply work in an intellectually invigorating environment. The Assistant Director will have many opportunities to expand his/her knowledge of technology and law, including frequent interactions with other fellows at the Berkman Center and throughout Harvard University.
Applications should be submitted as soon as possible, but no later than January 21, 2010. To apply, submit your CV or resume, cover letter summarizing your interest and key experience, and the names of three references through Harvard's recruitment site (ID: 22744) or by going to this link (shortened version available at http://bit.ly/icHiNx).
