Justice Volunteers – College Student Research Team application

The Justice Collaborative is a team of legal experts, researchers, and media strategists collaborating across a collection of strategically aligned projects to advance criminal justice reform. We supply deep legal and policy expertise to organizations throughout the country to cut through the complexity and confusion of local, state, and federal laws and procedures that make up our criminal justice system. Our goal is to transform our deeply flawed criminal system so that it’s grounded in human dignity and restraint.

The Justice Volunteers , a project of The Justice Collaborative (TJC), is a volunteer task force dedicated to researching a variety of key criminal justice issues. The work done by The Justice Volunteers is incredibly valuable to TJC’s goal of holding elected officials in the criminal justice
system accountable, advocating for reform-minded policies across the country, and researching and amplifying important local issues related to criminal justice reform.

The College Student Research Team will work remotely and be primarily supervised by Molly Bernstein. Almost all of this work is done online and is designed to be as flexible as possible to allow team members to work whenever their schedule permits. However, it is expected that members will work at least 3 hours per week.

Interested students should submit their resume and a cover letter to Molly Bernstein at molly.bernstein@thejusticecollaborative.com with the subject line “College Student Research Team Applicant.” In the cover letter, applicants should be sure to note which element(s) of the TJC Blueprint most align with their interests and/or past experiences.

As a program designed to maximize flexibility, we encourage applicants to apply as ongoing members of the College Student Research Team; however, students are welcome to apply more specifically for a summer, semester, or year-long position and should indicate their preferred time frame in the application’s cover letter.
