    London, United Kingdom REDRESS

    REDRESS, the award-winning legal charity that seeks justice and reparation for torture survivors, is looking for a volunteer graphic designer to assist us with the layout of one of our annual reports.

    We need someone who can work quickly within 2-3 weeks from start to finish and who is able to design a 40-page report.

    The aim of the report is to showcase our most recent work on behalf of torture survivors around the world and encourage more people to get behind our cause.

    We will supply all the images and will provide guidance as needed. Preferred design software would be Publisher, but InDesign can be also used.

    This is a one-off task that can be completed from home or from our London offices. Lunch and travel expenses to the office will be covered.

    If you are interested, please email your CV and a few examples of your work to Eva Sanchis, REDRESS' Communications Officer, at ASAP.

    Thank you for applying.

  • Open Doors at the Federal Courthouse!

    Baltimore, MD, US Community Law In Action, Inc.

    Annually Community Law in Action hosts an "Open Doors" event in conjunction with the Federal Courthouse of Baltimore city. At Open Doors local youth are invited to visit the courthouse and learn how the court system works. Students get to meet prosecutors, defense attorneys, judges, law clerks and other personnel. Students watch mock trials performed by actual attorneys and then serve as jurors.

    • We are seeking volunteers to help supervise our youth. Volunteers are asked to arrive at 8:30 am, and asked to stay until 2:00pm. Lunch will be served! This a great opportunity for any adult interested in learning more about the courthouse, networking with Baltimore's legal professionals and perhaps most importantly fostering an opportunity for youth to learn more about the legal system.

    Ends October 23, 2014, 2:15 AM

  • GWU's Master's in Philosophy & Philosophy and Social Policy Information Session (Online & In-Person)

    This is a small and informal information session for students interested in earning either a M.A. in philosophy or an M.A. in philosophy and social policy. Current faculty members will discuss prerequisites for admission, career opportunities, and coursework. Current students will talk about their own experiences in the program, and ample time will be reserved for Q&A.

    Register to join us online via webinar or use Eventbrite to register for the live session taking place at 801 22nd ST, NW, Phillips Hall 411, Washington, DC 20052.

    M.A. Philosophy - The Master of Arts in Philosophy develops the critical thinking, close reading, persuasive writing and oral communication skills needed for success in a doctoral program or teaching career. Students that graduate from this degree track may go on to obtain their PhD in Philosophy or a related field, such as political theory, biomedical ethics and gender studies. Others draw upon the broad base of philosophical knowledge to instruct at a secondary or two-year college level. Unlike other Philosophy MA degrees, this program includes a high degree of analytical philosophy curriculum in addition to the more traditional study of historical texts and scholarship.

    M.A Philosophy and Social Policy - The interdisciplinary MA Program in Philosophy and Social Policy offers students some specially-focused coursework in philosophy while helping them learn to apply insights from philosophy to problems of public policy. (This distinguishes us from most policy programs, which usually prepare their students mainly to be quantitative analysts.) MA graduates' experience in the job-market has been excellent. Most graduates find policy-related jobs with government agencies (e.g., Congressional Research Service, Labor Department), "think tanks" or policy institutes, associations/lobbies, or foundations. View the Recent MA Graduates for more information.
