There is an exciting opportunity to assist in the investigation of a legal claim under California’s Racial Justice Act. The RJA is a new statute that, for the first time, allows individuals who were sentenced to death to bring disparate impact claims to show how they were treated differently from other similarly situated individuals. The RJA allows individuals to show racial discrimination was at play in the decision to charge them with a capital crime and make them eligible for the death penalty. This is a statute that applies retroactively, whereas most statutes only apply to conduct that occurs after a statute becomes law.
Volunteers will review a discrete set of scanned documents from case files and pull data from them, filling out a survey as they go. The volunteers will work under the guidance of Professor Nick Petersen of the University of Miami, an expert in racial data analysis. All work is remotely. Coding work is expected to start as early as December of 2023 and will continue through spring of 2024. Professor Petersen is open to providing letters of recommendation to volunteers that can consistently contribute their time to this effort.
Students who are interested in this opportunity should be prepared to commit to the following:
1.Sign a confidentiality agreement that will restrict what they can and cannot say about the research project. As future lawyers, you should know that protecting the confidentiality of work in a particular case is a serious matter of professional responsibility.
2.Volunteer a minimum of 4 hours a week during the study period, which will last at least 5 months.
3.Respond to emails from Professor Petersen within 24 hours of receipt while you are working on the study. For this project, you will need to consistently check your email.
Interested students should send an email to Pamela Quanrud, email@example.com.
Ms. Quanrud is one of the attorneys on the project and will be the point of contact between the volunteer students and Professor Petersen.
Deadline: Midnight Friday, November 17
With the second half of the semester in full swing, many students are embarking on research papers and course-culminating projects. To better support them in crafting these longer, more in-depth papers, the SLC Writing Program is thrilled to announce our Fall 2023 Virtual Research Writing Workshops! Each of our interactive workshops is designed to support students with an aspect of their research paper writing process. We’ll cover honing an intellectually significant research question, generating a strong literature review, cultivating their critical eye for revision, and so much more.
We have attached a flyer with more information, and there are more details on our website. We would greatly appreciate it if you would pass this information on to students in your networks.
Students who are selected for the program will participate in a series of workshops throughout the semester - scheduled for Mondays in the afternoon from 12 to 2:00 pm and will be advised on pursuing research opportunities as an undergraduate. There may also be an opportunity to receive mentoring from graduate students and faculty. Students who pursue this may earn one credit unit for completing the program. Elective credit only.
You are invited to a free Logic Games Workshop presented by TestMasters, the leader in high-end LSAT preparation.

When: November 15, 2023 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM Pacific Time
Register in advance for this meeting:
The workshop will be conducted by Anthony Meni, a veteran TestMasters instructor who has taught over two thousand LSAT students in live class settings. Anthony has 16 years of LSAT teaching experience, an official LSAT score in the 99th percentile, and a J.D. from George Washington University.
If you are interested in law school and want to crush the LSAT, don't miss this great opportunity. RSVP now to save your spot!
