Introducing ARI’s Summer Legal Fellowship

ARI announces its new summer legal fellowship, an internship program that allows law students to work alongside ARI’s policy intellectuals. Legal fellows will research and write on law and policy issues, working with Steve Simpson, director of legal studies, and other ARI intellectuals. “Law is obviously a very important part of policy debates today, so we are excited by the prospect of reaching out to law students and the legal community in general through this program,” Simpson said.

This summer’s legal fellow is Jordan Sisson, a student at Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles. Jordan, who is funded by Southwestern’s Law & Economic Freedom Fellowship, has a background in public relations and government affairs. He plans to practice in the area of land use and environmental law after graduating in 2015. “Having witnessed the many challenges and obstacles ill-conceived laws and burdensome regulations placed upon individuals, job-creators, and other producers,” Jordan said, “I am excited to have the opportunity to work with Mr. Simpson and ARI to advance the appeal of personal freedom and liberty.”

ARI’s summer legal fellowship is open to law students who have received a summer fellowship through their university or another institution (for example, the Koch Summer Fellow Program). Those interested in applying to next year’s program should contact Steve Simpson.
