Concurring Opinions’ Intern Contest
posted by Dave Hoffman
Inspired by Opinio Juris and Bill Simmons, Concurring Opinions is pleased to announce that it is in the market for an unpaid summer intern. Our thought is that some of you may be underemployed during the summer, or wish to add an interesting conversation starter to your resume. Or, perhaps, you are simply a huge fan of Nate Oman’s history of law posts and want to contribute to the next one.
1. The Job Description
Let’s start by repeating a key aspect of this job. It is unpaid, except in “prestige points,” which you can probably can’t even monetize on Berkman Island. In return for being associated with this Blog, and getting to know its authors, we’d expect you to work at least ten hours a week over the summer. We’d also expect the position to run until school starts again in late August.
The Concurring Opinions intern will help us on projects ranging from law school rankings, to the next edition of the law professor blogger census, to upgrading the technical aspects of the site, to collecting legal stories of interest to our readers in an informative and interesting way. We imagine that if you have interest and ability, you will draft several posts over the summer, though some of your work will be behind the scenes.
2. How to Apply?
Draft a blog post on why you deserve to be our Intern (400 words or less) and forward it,along with any supporting materials you think would help, to any of us by June 1, 2007. If you have any specialized technical expertise, be sure to brag about it.
