One of the new efforts underway at the Harvard Law School Library is providing support for the growing number of faculty who perform empirical research. It’s something that a few other libraries have begun to do, and we think it’s a great idea. After a successful pilot this past year (where we were swamped with business), we are hiring for two positions for this coming year: one, an empiricist to support faculty and student research and two, an empirical teaching fellow to support the teaching of statistics and related methods. This field is growing and changing in exciting ways, and we’re looking for a few great people to join us in this endeavor.
We are hiring for a teaching position in the Berkman Center clinical program for this coming fall. The job is a fun, dynamic, interesting one — teaching Harvard Law School students the applied side of cyberlaw. You’d work closely with me, with Phil Malone (former US DOJ senior lawyer, former HLS Kramer fellow, several years as co-director of the Berkman clinical program), and other Berkman team members, including Bruce Keller and Jeff Cunard, partners at Debevoise & Plimpton, who have been co-directors of our clinical program for the past few years as well and have been teaching in the HLS curriculum. We collaborate with some of the other terrific cyberlaw clinics out there from time to time as well, like Boalt (Samuelson Clinic), Stanford, and so forth. We work with terrific organizations like Creative Commons. We’re looking for someone with practice experience in the Internet law, IP, and/or related fields who has a strong interest in law teaching.
