Litigation Attorney
The candidate will take responsibility for all aspects of Center’s federal court litigation. Although supervision is always available, there will be ample and immediate opportunity for considerable individual responsibility. Working in conjunction with more senior staff, the litigation attorney will be responsible for: case development including investigating facilities suspected of violating federal environmental statutes, and meeting with affected community members; legal research and drafting pleadings, briefs, and memoranda; all facets of discovery and motion practice; working collaboratively with other Center attorneys and staff, local counsel, clients, and lay and expert witnesses; preparation for and conduct of hearings and trials; and negotiating settlement agreements. Should preferably have 2-5 years of litigation experience. Federal clerkship experience is also preferred. Additional relevant experience, such as scientific, engineering, political, policy, legal, journalistic, or government experience, is a plus. Advanced degrees in related fields may count toward a candidate's professional experience.
