Earthjustice is hiring a
The Northern Rockies Office — staffed by six attorneys, two litigation assistants, and an office manager — is engaged in a regional, ecosystem-based litigation program focused on protecting wild public lands in the Northern Rockies from industrial development; safeguarding some of America’s last remaining grizzly bears, wolves, bison, and other wildlife; restoring the region’s rivers, streams, and native fish runs; and stemming the mining and burning of coal that feeds global warming. In recent years, the work of the Northern Rockies office has increasingly touched on Native American interests and issues of Indian law, including work to restore wild bison to tribal lands; to oppose oil and gas exploration on public national forest lands of extreme cultural and spiritual importance to the Blackfeet people; and to halt a state proposal to open a massive new coal mine on lands significant to the Northern Cheyenne in southeast Montana.
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.
