Research Assistant Opportunity with Prof. Michael Broyde
By CSLR | Emory Law | Jan 25, 2021 12:01:00 AM

Although you might not know this, most of my research time is spent in law and religion and most of that time is spent in Jewish law. Now you know!
I am giving a series of zoom lectures on the relationship between Jewish law and American law (more generally the common law) as part of an adult ed series for a local synagogue. See next to this.

I am thinking of turning these into a text and maybe then a book. I am looking for someone to work with me on this project I think that would entail. Taking the Zoom transcription and turning it into a text that flows.

1. Eliminating the things that do not belong in a text, but are part of zoom.
2. Footnoting and elaborating on the things that need elaboration – some Jewish law and some American law.
3. Thinking with me on coherence and value.
4. Thinking on what is missing and what needs to be taken out.

This person can work off of the zoom recording or join me live for classes, which are Wednesday night at 7:30.

This project could continue – and I would like it to – into this summer.

You can get credit or pay or even both as the work demands.

If you are interested, send me a note and a cv.

Thank you.
