The Program offers a range of opportunities for Harvard students. Exposed to some of the foremost challenges in the changing contemporary strategic environment, HLS PILAC research assistants gain valuable experience performing high-level international law and policy research and analysis.
Harvard students have contributed, and are currently contributing, to the work of HLS PILAC scholars and to the Program’s research projects. HLS PILAC has also developed an “on call” roster of research assistants for more discrete assignments.
HLS PILAC researchers work closely with the Harvard Law School Library—which maintains a library research guide for the Program—to maximize our use of the university’s unparalleled information and library resources.
Please note that, in general, HLS PILAC Research Assistant positions are limited to current HLS students. Some HLS PILAC Research Assistant positions may be open to individuals who are not current HLS students, though only where expressly indicated as such.
If there are any currently open HLS PILAC Research Assistant positions, those positions are announced below. If there is no such announcement, it is because there are currently no Research Assistant openings. Please check this webpage regularly, as new positions may arise at any time. HLS PILAC staff are not in a position to field Research Assistant inquiries outside of an active open call for applications.
This year, leading academics, practitioners and international experts will examine a number of legal challenges raised by the application of the Additional Protocols to the Geneva Conventions on the occasion of their 40th anniversary.
