The Northeastern Center for Law, Equity and Race (CLEAR), housed within Northeastern University School of Law, advances interdisciplinary research and teaching that explores the intersections of race, social and economic justice, law and governance in the United States. Initial anchor projects of CLEAR include the Civil Rights & Restorative Justice Project, dedicated to questions of historical injustice, and the Criminal Justice Task Force, which convenes stakeholders to address policies, practices, and structural features of the criminal justice system that disenfranchise the most vulnerable members of society.
Along with the two Faculty Directors the Managing Director will be the public face of CLEAR, bringing experience, vision, enthusiasm, and subject matter knowledge to the position. The Managing Director will manage day-to-day operations, including the programmatic, administrative, budgetary and development aspects of CLEAR.
The Civil Rights & Restorative Justice Project (CRRJ) is hiring a clinical legal fellow. The position is for a year with an opportunity for a second year.
The Elizabeth Zitrin Justice Fellow is a clinical fellowship that offers opportunities for professional development in the fields of civil rights, criminal justice, and restorative justice. The Fellow teaches and mentors law students, develops courses and course material and contributes to CRRJ’s advocacy-oriented programs and ongoing academic, governmental, and community-based projects.
The CRRJ Community Leadership Fellowship program provides an opportunity for dynamic activists working with community and nonprofit organizations to investigate the Burnham Nobles Archive and to interact with scholars, journalists and other activists who are focusing on historical racism in the US and avenues for redress. There are no academic requirements for selection. Applicants with a history of anti-racist activism are encouraged to apply. Community Leadership Fellows will have opportunities to exchange with CRRJ faculty, staff and students, and with local activists in the Boston area. While the fellowship does not include a stipend, fellows will have access to office space, library, and technology support.
