JD Affiliate Program
The Center provides a few unpaid positions each year for Indiana Law students to conduct research and carry out projects on legal issues related to the work of the Center.
In April of 2008, the Student Affiliate Program was formalized with a new application process, information packets, and progress report system for bringing exceptional JD students into the Center and for monitoring their progress throughout the year. A downloadable application was added to the Center Web site. Student Affiliates are provided with work space at the Center, invited to Center seminars and events, and given hands-on experience with the legal research necessary for democracy promotion and constitutional design. Such work is a rare opportunity for Indiana Law students to be involved with reform movements around the world and will be a valuable addition to resumes for students interested in democracy promotion as a career.
