Cate Seeks Research Assistants

Professor Fred H. Cate is looking for one or two superb research assistants to work on two projects. One involves government access to personal information held by businesses and individuals. The other concerns the challenges presented by conflicting national laws that implicate privacy (e.g., U.S. discovery orders that require the production of e-mail protected by European privacy laws). Strong research and writing skills are essential, and some course work or other experience in Fourth Amendment or international law would be helpful. If interested, please drop off a resume and transcript in Professor Cate's mailbox, or e-mail them (or any questions) to fcate@indiana.edu.

Ochoa Seeks Research Assistant

Professor Christiana Ochoa is seeking research assistance. Applicants should have excellent research skills and a strong background in social sciences. Prior experience or classes in international law and human rights will also be beneficial. Interested students should submit resumes in hard copy to Professor Ochoa's mailbox in the second-floor mail room.
