Barbara Lee Intrnshp

Congresswoman Barbara Lee’s Oakland District Office is currently accepting internship applications for spring 2017 from students currently enrolled at an accredited institution who live in or attend school in the 13th Congressional District. The internship program offers an opportunity to learn about the Congresswoman’s work in the 13th Congressional District, provide direct services to constituents and assist with outreach events.

Applicants should be flexible, professional and have excellent written and oral communication skills. The internships are unpaid, but we will be glad to help secure credits through the student’s school or university and interns who demonstrate an ability to assist staff on a high level will earn recommendation letters. For the spring internship program, we have a minimum time commitment of 8 hours per week. Applications are due by Monday, November 28, 2016. Students from underrepresented communities are strongly encouraged to apply.

To apply, please complete the online application at www.Lee.House.Gov/serving-you/internships.

Call for Submissions – Claremont Journal of Law and Public Policy [www.5clpp.com]
The Claremont Journal of Law and Public Policy (CJLPP) is soliciting submissions for its seventh issue. Please see below for qualifications.

The Claremont Journal of Law and Public Policy is a student-run journal that covers a wide range of legal and public-policy issues. It was founded in the Fall of 2013 as the Claremont Law Journal and has since changed names to reflect the broader interests of students at the Claremont Colleges. The mission of the journal is to publish high quality analysis as well as to stimulate interest and debate over legal and public policy issues on campus and beyond.

QUALIFICATIONS FOR SUBMISSION

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: November 17th, 2016 at 11:59 PM

CJLPP is looking for papers ranging from 3 to 12 single-spaced pages in length. Our journal is especially receptive to research papers, senior theses, and independent studies or final papers written for classes. Papers need not be on American law or public policy — they can be on international systems or the law or public policy of any country. We consider submissions on a rolling basis for each issue, so if your piece is not finished by the deadline, please still submit it upon completion.

Students in any field of study are encouraged to submit their work, so long as their piece relates to the law or public policy. Possible disciplinary perspectives include, but are not limited to: History, Criminology, Economics, Sociology, Anthropology, English, Biology, Neuroscience, Philosophy, Linguistics, Psychology, and Political Science.

Please submit your work by email to Martin.Sicilian@Pomona.edu.

Selected pieces will be published in the seventh issue of the Claremont Journal of Law and Public Policy. Other pieces may be selected for online publication only.

Please direct questions or concerns to Martin.Sicilian@Pomona.edu
