Professor Scoville Seeks a Research Assistant

Professor Scoville is looking for a research assistant to help him with a project on U.S. state agreements with foreign governments. In the short-term, the work will consist of typing into a Word document the text of a chapter of an old German treatise on international law. Knowledge of German is not necessary, but it may be helpful. Estimated time to complete the project is roughly three hours, and the project is for pay, not course credit. Other related projects may also arise on occasion over the long-term if the student remains interested and available. 

Those interested should contact Professor Scoville at ryan.scoville@marquette.edu
