Working closely with the Director, summer program analysts and associates will have the exciting opportunity to support the launch of the Corrections Accountability Project at the Urban Justice Center. Summer program analysts and associates will conduct legal and field research on the commercial interests embedded in our criminal legal system, engaging with criminal justice stakeholders from corrections administrators to currently incarcerated people. Interested summer program analysts and associates will also have an opportunity to draft legal writing samples, conduct financial analyses, author blog posts and op-eds, and/or assist with advocacy campaigns.

QUALIFICATIONS

  • Summer program analysts must be current undergraduate students.
  • Summer program associates must be current graduate students.

Dedicated to developing innovative approaches to dissolving the prison industrial complex, we invite candidates with a wide array of skillsets, including those that may be unique in the legal environment, to apply.

Candidates should also have strong analytical, research, and writing skills. Candidates must be eligible for degree credits, pro bono hours, external funding, or be otherwise supported as this is an unpaid position.

PROJECTS

We are interested in all projects that explore the commercial interests embedded in our criminal legal system, particularly those that aim to dissolve the carceral industry and restore economic value in low-income communities plagued by mass incarceration. We welcome projects that employ unconventional approaches. We encourage candidates to propose their own passion projects, but we are also happy to work with strong candidates to develop successful fellowship projects.
