Profile

Litigation Fellow
Responsibilities: The sponsored fellowship will involve an application to the sponsoring organization detailing a project proposal that the Fellow and Everytown Law co-design. Depending on the project, the Litigation Fellow’s primary work may involve federal and state court litigation practice (legal research and analysis, strategy development, complaint drafting and trial court, appellate, and amicus brief writing), as well as direct client representation. Responsibilities may also include interviewing and supervising legal interns and speaking at public events, including presentations to law school students and at other public interest legal events. The Fellow will report to Everytown Law’s senior attorneys and will have a high level of responsibility and self direction.

Qualification and Experience

Qualifications: J.D. Excellent legal analysis, research, writing, and editing skills. Outstanding attention to detail and an ability to explain complex legal and historical concepts to both legal and non-legal audiences. Ability to manage multiple projects in a fast-moving environment and deliver timely and high-quality work. A commitment to social justice, an interest in gun violence prevention law and policy, and a passion for Everytown's mission of preventing gun violence in America. This is an entry-level position; recent law school graduates as well as attorneys with more experience may apply. Sponsoring organizations may have additional qualification requirements. Clerkship experience and experience working with marginalized communities and survivors of trauma are a plus.
