Workin' in Family Law

I accepted the family law textbook position. It's only 15-20 hours though, so I'll do something else too. Hopefully MCI, if not then probably the other research assistantship. And who knows, maybe Justice at Stake will decide to actually call me back -- then things will really get interesting. Or maybe not. I'm not sure I'm all that excited about working for a nonprofit advocacy group anyway.

  • You know, you might have come across as 'not so excited' in your interview, dufus. I bet you'll do great no matter what you end up doing. *hugs*

    Logan just showed me your blog. Cool! Well, here's a notice about prospective work... unfortunately they wanted to hear from applicants by May 2, but I'll bet if you give them a call today perhaps they would consider your application. I hope so at least! Just an idea if you're interested.

    ABOUT THE US CAMPAIGN: The US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation is

    three year-old coalition of nearly 200 member organizations. The US
    Campaign is
    working to change US policy toward Israel and Palestine to support
    peace,
    justice, human rights, and international law rather than military
    occupation.

    ABOUT THE INTERNSHIP: The US Campaign is currently hiring college-aged
    interns for the summer of 2005. Interns will be expected to work 40
    hours per week
    under supervision of the US Campaign staff in its Washington, DC office.

    individuals, and be able

    and
    hands-on opportunities for professional and personal development.
    Interns are also
    strongly encouraged to propose projects to initiate. Candidates with
    language
    skills in Arabic and Hebrew are strongly encouraged to apply. The US
    Campaign is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to a
    diversified
    workplace.
