The California Regional Office currently works to promote clean energy and zero emission transportation policies; to rein in oil and gas extraction, particularly in locations that threaten frontline communities; to improve air and water quality for residents in the Central Valley; to preserve lands and biodiversity in the Sierra Nevada, Bay Delta, and elsewhere; and to protect state residents and sensitive ecosystems from pesticides and other toxic substances. Our attorneys bring lawsuits under a mix of state and federal environmental laws and engage in administrative and other forms of advocacy to protect the environment and promote environmental justice. We will hire three law clerks for summer 2023.
We are also participating in the Diversity and Inclusion Fellowship Program (Fellowship Program) organized by the Environmental Law Section of the California Lawyers Association, through which an additional 2023 summer law clerk may be placed with our team. The Fellowship Program has a separate application process administered by the Environmental Law Section of the California Lawyers Association.

The Earthjustice Summer Clerkship position includes a weekly stipend of $1,280 a week, with the average clerkship lasting 10 weeks (approximately $12,800 total). The total stipend amount will be dependent on the extent of a clerk’s ability to secure outside funding. Earthjustice will pay $1,280 a week less the total amount received from other sources. We strongly encourage candidates to pursue outside funding, but the ability to secure outside funding will not be considered as part of the hiring decision. Note the stipend is taxed, so stipend payments are less applicable taxes.
Applications will close on September 23, 2022. We recommend submitting your application as soon as it is ready.
