What is the Library RA Program?


The Library Research Assistant program hires current UCLA Law students to work as research assistants for law faculty members while receiving supervision and guidance from law librarians. This is a great opportunity to work with law professors and library staff while improving research skills. We match Library RAs with faculty members based on their skills, background, and interests. Rate of pay begins at $23.00 per hour.

We hire 1L students for full-time, 40 hour per week positions during their 1L summer. Each January, we hold an information session about the position and application process, and release the job advertisement. We hire on a rolling basis throughout the spring semester. The summer program starts in mid to late May with a 4-day mandatory training on research and professionalism skills and runs until mid to late July. Summer Library RAs may have the option to continue working part time during the school year. 

We hire upper division law students each fall and spring for part time, 10 hour per week jobs. We typically release the job advertisements for these positions in August and December. The school year program starts with a 2-day mandatory research and professionalism skills training on a weekend after the start of the semester.
