RA Posting: Tech Institute Seeks a Summer Fellow for Summer 2019
Open to current Georgetown Law students

The Tech Institute is looking for an exceptional student to serve as a Summer Fellow for summer 2019. The fellow will work under the supervision of the Institute's Executive Director, Alexandra Givens, in partnership with the Institute's faculty, fellows and staff.  

The fellowship is open to current students at Georgetown Law with an interest in the intersection of technology, law and public policy. No technical expertise is required, and we welcome students with diverse, non-tech interests who want to gain deeper understanding of how technology is affecting their area of policy and law.

The Summer Fellow is invited to select a research topic of their choosing for an in-depth research project, ideally leading to publication in a national outlet. In addition, the Fellow will assist the ongoing work of the Institute in one or more of the following areas:

  • Internet policy and competition: net neutrality and competition, including supporting the work of our Distinguished Fellow Gigi Sohn.

  • Artificial intelligence and data ownership: access to data, privacy, the intersection of AI and intellectual property, and how data impacts competition.

  • Entrepreneurship and inclusive innovation: support our partnership with the D.C. Mayor's Office to provide strategic recommendations on improving an ecosystem that supports diverse women entrepreneurs.

  • Access to Justice: support our work around technology as a tool to promote access to justice. In partnership with the Self Represented Litigation Network, the Institute is piloting a study across all 50 states on effective tools to help individuals represent themselves in court; and

  • Other projects to be announced.

You can learn more about the Institute’s recent activities here, and meet our team here.

The Fellowship is compensated and will run 10 weeks between May and August. Dates are negotiable.

The Institute is also accepting applications for part-time Summer RAs, who will work for the Institute on a part time basis (~5 hours per week) alongside another role. If you would like to be considered for a part-time Summer RA position, please indicate that in your application.
