U.S.-Asia Law Institute: Student Scholars (Deadline: Sept. 25)

Posted on

USALI is currently accepting applications for its annual Student Scholars program, a year-long opportunity to produce independent research related to the Institute’s ongoing projects.

Who:  NYU Law Students

What: Interested applicants should send a current CV and statement of interest to USALI’s general email (usali.nyu@gmail.com). Proficiency in Chinese, Japanese, Korean or Vietnamese is preferred, but not required.

When:  Deadline for applications is September 25, 2017.

More About the Program:

USALI serves as one of America’s preeminent research centers for the study of the legal systems of Mainland China and Taiwan. It works to improve popular, professional and scholarly understanding of China and Taiwan at home and abroad through its publications and exchanges concerning comparative and international law.

Through research and writing, Student Scholars at the Institute will spend one academic year contributing to USALI’s ongoing legal reform projects in China and elsewhere in East Asia. These include promoting criminal justice reform and strengthening public interest law in the fields of public interest lawyering, labor rights, and anti-discrimination.  In October, we will also be engaging a substantial group of eminent East Asian lawyers and scholars in a month-long program to learn about wrongful convictions work in New York. We are also planning similar programs in the Spring. Space permitting, students are encouraged to attend these programs.

Student Scholars will receive guidance and feedback from USALI’s directors and staff as part of NYU Law’s Directed Research program (which offers 2 academic credits). Along with receiving research and writing guidance from USALI’s directors, Scholars will be given the opportunity to engage with USALI staff and visiting scholars.
