The Harvard Law School National Security Research Committee (NSRC) is seeking students to conduct research on U.S. detention law, as part of an on-going project in partnership with the Brookings Institution. NSRC will track habeas corpus cases for terrorism detainees to update a paper entitled “The Emerging Law of Detention 2.0: The GuantÃ¡namo Habeas Cases as Lawmaking,” (available here: http://www.law.harvard.edu/programs/abou…). Project participants will also have the opportunity to conduct original research on related topics to expand the paper and create additional content for the website of the HLS-Brookings Project for Law and Security.
Participation in the project should not require more than a few hours of research per week, although more time may occasionally be required. Contributors may have the opportunity to extend their work on the project into the spring semester. Interested students should send an email, including a resume and a statement of interest, to Miranda Dugi ( mdugi at jd12.law.harvard.edu) and Will Marra ( wmarra at jd12.law.harvard.edu), no later than 5pm on September 30, 2011.
