The attorney will focus on work with foreign and international nongovernmental organizations and institutions to develop regulatory frameworks for – and to remove obstacles to – the accelerated deployment of clean energy. The attorney will also work to incorporate clean energy economic, climate and reliability arguments into a range of cases challenging fossil energy plants and projects in select countries.
Founded in 1971, Earthjustice has a long track record of success in partnering across borders to use US, foreign, and international law to protect the global environment. Drawing on deep experience in foreign, US and international environmental, energy and human rights law, and foreign and international litigation, we work with partners in Africa, Indonesia, Australia, Latin America and elsewhere on domestic and international legal advocacy to reduce dependence on dirty fossil fuels and speed the transition to clean energy.

For that reason, it is our strong preference that the position be based in San Francisco or Washington, DC, but another location may be considered.
The ideal candidate will also have experience working in another country and/or knowledge of foreign energy law issues and professional fluency in a foreign language.
Salary is based on number of years of litigation experience and location.
