Volunteer Opportunity with the Nonhuman Rights Project
The Nonhuman Rights Project is the only organization working toward actual Legal rights for members of species other than our own. Our mission is to change the common law status of at least some nonhuman animals from mere “things,” which lack the capacity to possess any legal right, to “persons,” who possess such fundamental rights as bodily integrity and bodily liberty, and those other legal rights to which evolving standards of morality, scientific discovery, and human experience entitle them.
The Nonhuman rights project is seeking volunteers to help conduct research for an upcoming case being prepared for filing in 2013. We are looking for volunteer law students with excellent academic credentials, strong research and exceptional writing skills,and keen analytical ability. Journal experience is preferred. If interested, please send your resume and writing sample to Natalie Prosin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
