Attention Law School Graduates!
The Cato Institute writes with an offer for newly minted lawyers:
Use Your Deferment to Work for Liberty!
Many law firms are asking their incoming first-year associates to defer their start dates (from a few months to a full year) and are offering stipends to these deferred associates to work at public interest organizations.
The Cato Institute invites third-year law students and others facing firm deferrals to apply to work at the Center for Constitutional Studies. This is an opportunity to assist on projects ranging from Supreme Court amicus briefs to policy papers to the Cato Supreme Court Review.
Interested students and graduates should email a cover letter, resume, transcript, and writing sample, along with any specific details of their deferment (timing, stipend availability, etc.) to Jonathan Blanks at firstname.lastname@example.org.
