Are you a rising 2L, 3L, or LLM who is interested in learning about corporate governance, the relationship between internal and external stakeholders, and the role of shareholders? The HLS Shareholder Rights Project (SRP) is a clinical program through which faculty and students assist public pension funds and charitable organizations to improve corporate governance at publicly traded companies in which they are shareowners. With supervising attorneys, students conduct research, draft memos and reports, and participate in meetings with company and pension fund representatives.
The Shareholder Rights Project seeks participants for its 2012-2013 clinical program, which includes a fall-spring clinic and a spring seminar. To apply, submit a statement of interest (maximum 200 words), resume, and academic transcript (unofficial or official). You may also opt to include a writing sample of no more than 15 pages (one sample only). Applications should be addressed to the instructors, Lucian Bebchuk and Scott Hirst, but submitted to Emily Lewis ( emlewis at law.harvard.edu). Applications will be considered on a rolling basis. Interested students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible, as only a few spots remain.
