LPP began with a small group of Harvard Law School students motivated to do the most good with their law careers. What started as an idea in 2018 turned into a global organization with affiliates at top law schools, a comprehensive academic research agenda, multiple publications on legal longtermism, and strong connections with leading organizations in academia, the effective altruism community, and public policy. These include Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Oxford, Australian National University, Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México, Strathmore University, OpenAI, the Centre for the Governance of AI, and the United Nations, among others.
At LPP, you will enjoy:
- Working together with highly motivated people who care deeply about doing good with their careers.
- An intellectually stimulating work environment with minimal bureaucratic barriers and an orientation toward action.
- An opportunity to work on some of the world’s most pressing problems in an emerging field.
- Opportunities to connect with a broader community of policymakers, researchers, scientists, organizers, grantmakers, and others who care about protecting the well-being of future generations and reducing existential risk.
