Student Research Fellows work with faculty on a variety of research and advocacy projects. The goal of the program is to provide law students, Barrett College students and others with the opportunity to work individually and in teams on practical, policy-oriented international and transnational law projects. Center Student Research Fellows have drafted briefing books for the UN Subcommittee on Prevention of Torture, assisted with Freedom of Information Act Requests, conducted research on human trafficking, gathered material on the use of drones and worked on amicus briefs for cases before the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. The Center links Student Research Fellows’ work to the creation of policy reports, publications and materials that have a direct impact on particular issues regarding law and global affairs.
Applications for the Center’s Student Research Fellow are due in the fall semester of each year.
Please feel free to contact the Center if you have any questions about this process or would like assistance on preparing your application or learning more about the program.
