Description of the Position
The Center for Earth Jurisprudence is seeking a Staff Attorney to assist in legal and legislative matters on a contractual, as-needed basis. At the request of the Director, the Staff Attorney will be responsible for:
- Drafting legal memoranda, administrative comments, legal briefs, proposed legislation, and legal strategies that advance CEJ’s adopted positions.
- Assist the CEJ Team in developing a template for strategic legal initiatives for the Center to increase the legal protection of nature.
- Identify and collaborate with environmental and legal partners in increasing legislative and community awareness and support to enhance greater legal protection of ecosystems, both local and national.
CEJ is the only Center within a U.S. law school dedicated to advancing laws, policy, and governance designed to protect the natural systems, species, and entities that sustain life on Earth through the use of Earth Law principles. Our work is based upon the concept that humanity has a basic responsibility to care for and protect the long-term health and well-being of Earth, meaning all beings and ecosystems that constitute the natural world, recognizing that humanity is an integral and interdependent part of nature. Earth Jurisprudence is an emerging field of law that encompasses both environmental ethics and legal practice. In the past 10 years CEJ has advanced its outreach, programming and visibility significantly.
