About the Program
Campus Reps Program
This initiative engages law professors in helping scientists understand how to protect themselves from harassment and legal attacks. We created the program with the goal of building a national network of lawyers at public and private universities who can serve as the first point of contact for researchers with questions about legal issues.
Campus Reps do not provide direct representation to scientists. Instead they serve as an educational resource and direct scientists to CSLDF as needed. Each Campus Rep receives training, materials, and ongoing support from CSLDF to prepare and assist them in working with scientists on their campus.
Our current cohort consists of 21 law professors from around the United States. Read about the program in The New York Times.
Become a Campus Rep
To be eligible for the program, you must have a JD or LLM, work at a college or university in the United States, and be interested in working with scientists at your institution; adjuncts and fellows are also welcome to participate.
We ask that all participants:
- Attend a training in person or via webinar
- Host an educational workshop (all materials will be provided) for scientists on their campus
- Meet with scientists who have concerns on an as-needed basis
- Meet periodically with their university counsel and communications department
- Refer academics in need to CSLDF
- Allow CSLDF to add their contact information to our website
- Maintain communication with CSLDF about their activities and progress
We’ll provide Campus Reps with materials to help them understand the legal issues facing scientists and prepare to support scientists; participants will also receive ongoing support from CSLDF.
The application deadline for our 2017 training has passed. Please contact us if you’re interested in becoming a Campus Rep or would like to know more about the program.
