Legal Clinic Clerk Needed

The Legal Clinic is seeking a clerk to work approximately 10 hours a week on a variety of projects across the clinics, including the Expungement and Innocence and Wrongful Convictions Clinics. There is potential for the position to continue through the spring semester. Interested students should send a resume to the Clinic’s Administrative Coordinator, Lisa Holden, at lmholden@utk.edu. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.


Research Assistants Needed–Professor Bach

Professor Wendy Bach is seeking two research assistants to help with a study of Tennessee’s recently expired fetal assault law.  Under this statute, women were prosecuted for transmission in utero of opiates to their fetuses.  Although proposals are pending in other states, Tennessee is the only state in that nation to explicitly  criminalize this act.  Though the study, Professor Bach is gathering data on these prosecutions, interviewing actors and conducting background research on the legal and health policy issues involved. Research assistants will be gathering data and participating in all aspects of the study.  Please apply by emailing a brief letter of interest, a copy of your resume and an estimate of the number of hours you have available to devote to research to Professor Bach at wbach@utk.edu.  Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled.
