For a variety of environmental law projects (including one on the National Wildlife Refuge System), Professor Fischman seeks a research assistant to begin in January, the earlier the better. Fischman will return from sabbatical in early December and hopes to select a research aide at that time for work beginning the following month. If you are interested, please leave a resume and brief cover letter in his mailbox. Experience in environmental law is not necessary, though helpful.
