Position Description: The Williams Institute seeks a law fellow to engage in cutting-edge and high-quality research and analysis related to sexual orientation and gender identity law and public policy. The Daniel. H. Renberg Law Fellow will further the Williams Institute's mission by conducting legal and multi-disciplinary research on discrimination facing LGBTQ people, LGBTQ health, LGBTQ families, and criminal justice, among other topics. The Law Fellow will provide research and writing support to senior scholars at the Institute and will contribute to self-published reports, academic articles, public comments, amicus briefs and other Institute work. The position will be for two years and will be based in Los Angeles, California (as COVID-19 regulations permit).
The nation's leading research center on sexual orientation and gender identity law and public policy, the Williams Institute produces rigorous and independent research with real-world relevance and disseminates it to judges, legislators, policymakers, media, and the public. Research from the Williams Institute has impacted a wide variety of law and policy issues. For example, the U.S. Supreme Court and numerous other federal courts relied on Williams Institute research in striking down marriage equality bans; President Obama relied on Williams Institute research when issuing an Executive Order prohibiting federal contractors from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity; and Williams Institute research helped form the legislative record supporting passage of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act by Congress.
