Job Description

The American Civil Liberties Union of Alaska is looking for an experienced and ambitious litigator as our full-time Senior Staff Attorney to focus on cutting-edge, constitutional impact litigation. You’ll be responsible for litigating every step of your docket of complex cases, from initial client contact to final resolution at trial or appeal, and will report to the Legal Director as an integral member of our team’s mission to expand and defend civil liberties throughout Alaska and beyond.

Who we are

The ACLU of Alaska is the Alaska affiliate of the national ACLU, the nation’s oldest and largest protector of the Bill of Rights. We are Alaska’s premier civil rights and civil liberties advocate, and are a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that integrates litigation, public policy advocacy, public education, communications with the media and our members, and coalition building and grassroots organizing to defend and expand Alaskans’ constitutional rights and individual freedoms. As part of the ACLU of Alaska’s 50th anniversary, we’re embarking on our most ambitious advocacy yet, which includes eliminating discrimination against LGBTQ individuals, dramatically reforming the criminal justice system, paring back the national security state and strengthening the right to privacy, ensuring that all Americans can freely and easily vote, and defeating perennial attempts to restrict women’s right to safe and legal abortions.

Your responsibilities

  • Represent the ACLU of Alaska and its clients in all aspects of complex impact litigation, including factual and legal research, discovery, motion practice, trials, appeals, and amicus briefs;
  • In concert with the Legal Director, proactively seek out and creatively implement a strategic impact litigation program that advances key civil liberties by persuading state and federal courts, administrative tribunals, and regulatory agencies to recognize new or established legal principles;
  • Proactively identify litigation opportunities, and, in consultation with the Executive Director and Legal Director, select direct-representation and amicus cases for the ACLU of Alaska;
  • Develop and maintain relationships with partner organizations, public interest law firms, legal service agencies, and other members of the Alaska legal community;
  • Recruit, train, and coordinate volunteer attorneys’ work on ACLU of Alaska cases.
  • Serve as a spokesperson for the ACLU of Alaska, with the Communications, Legal, and Executive Directors;
  • Work with fellow ACLU of Alaska staff to integrate litigation with policy advocacy, communications and public education, and philanthropy; and
  • Work with the Executive and Legal Directors and Director of Philanthropy to participate in budget, donor, and planning meetings as needed.

Qualifications

The ideal candidate has:

  • Law degree and a license to practice law in Alaska or the ability to be admitted by reciprocity or passing the next bar exam;
  • At least five years’ experience litigating complex civil trials and appeals in federal and state courts;
  • Ability to work across the political spectrum with grasstops and diverse coalitions, including developing shared plans, and navigating internal political dynamics among partner groups;
  • Exceptional initiative, vision, and ambition to build a vibrant, integrated litigation program through short- and long-term integrated strategies;
  • Passion for, and a well-articulated knowledge of, civil liberties and social justice, and a familiarity with the work and mission of the ACLU;
  • Exceptional analytical, research, writing, and oral advocacy skills, as well as the ability to articulate legal concepts and complex issues and to communicate them tactfully and effectively to a variety of audiences;
  • Ability to edit the work of oneself and others with a collegial spirit to correct grammar and sharpen prose;
  • Experience working with other staff and leading teams by listening, guiding, and supporting colleagues to achieve common goals;
  • Keen attention to detail; ability to work simultaneously with initiative on multiple projects at various stages of completion; good problem-solving and collaboration skills; a positive, professional attitude with sound judgment, flexibility, determination, and good humor in a fast-paced, sometimes high-pressure office;
  • An absolute commitment to the highest ethical and professional standards;
  • Willingness to work beyond 9 to 5 and to travel throughout Alaska as needed; and
  • Fluency with computers, Microsoft Office, and Westlaw.

Compensation

This is an exempt, full-time, at-will position. The salary range is $70,000 to $85,000 and includes excellent benefits, including health, dental, disability, and life insurance, a 401(k) plan with an employer-match, and generous vacation, sick, and holiday leave. The ACLU of Alaska also offers a stipend to help defray moving costs where appropriate.

The position is full-time, can be located in DC, and (once AU returns to in-person work) in a standard, white-collar office environment. Note, however, that about half of AU’s staff is permanently remote and a large portion of local staff are expected to continue working from home whenever we return to an office environment. So you do not need to be located in the DC area to apply.

We have a majority BIPOC and LGBTQ staff, four of us are part of the trans community, and many of our younger staff (and very-middle-aged me) use they/them/theirs as our pronouns. We’re also a really casual job environment when in-person, with many of us wearing jeans daily.

DEADLINE DATE

August 31, 2021
 

The American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania (“ACLU-PA”) seeks a Staff Attorney. As an affiliate of the ACLU, the ACLU of Pennsylvania focuses its work on issues that directly impact people who live in, work in, or travel to/from Pennsylvania. We also work with the National ACLU on litigation and advocacy. 

Our current work is organized around the following three priority areas: (1) reducing the number of people in prisons, jails, and detention centers; (2) minimizing police and other law enforcement interaction with Black and brown communities and holding the police accountable for grievous harm; and, (3) protecting and expanding voting rights and access, eliminating barriers that disenfranchise voters, and increasing civic engagement. The Staff Attorney will focus on these issues as well as other core civil rights and civil liberties matters. 

The Staff Attorney will hone litigation skills under the tutelage of more senior lawyers. We are accepting applicants to work either in the Philadelphia or Pittsburgh offices.  

The ACLU-PA’s Legal Department is comprised of seven staff attorneys as well as legal fellows. Legal Department staff work on a wide range of civil rights and civil liberties cases, at both trial and appellate levels, in federal and state courts. They also support the legislative, advocacy, and communications work of the ACLU-PA.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Vision Statement

The ACLU-PA affirmatively values the humanity and contributions of those we work with, inside and outside of the organization, and will take action to build and sustain an equitable, anti-racist culture that centers the voices and experiences of marginalized and directly impacted people and communities, and an organizational environment where all people feel valued, trusted, and respected. We are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and having a workforce that reflects the populations that we serve; we actively recruit people of color, women, people with disabilities, formerly incarcerated people, and LGBQ&T, and gender non-conforming people.
 

The Approach

Our work is guided by the principles of freedom, equality, and justice enumerated in the Constitution. However, we understand that systemic racism and other forms of oppression have prevented the equitable application of these principles to all, and we strive to ensure that our approach accounts for this reality. We also acknowledge that demands of the work as well as the challenging subject matter it often involves take a toll. While we know that the path of this work is long and hard, we also value the importance of personal wellbeing. To that end, we endeavor to cultivate a culture that is supportive and sustainable and promotes taking care of oneself.
 

Duties and Responsibilities

  • The vast majority of an ACLU-PA attorney’s work entails the investigation, development, and initiation of litigation involving a mix of high-impact and emergent cases, which requires the following duties and responsibilities: 

    • evaluating and investigating potential claims; 
    • conducting legal research and analysis; 
    • identifying potential plaintiffs and developing working relationships with them;
    • working on cases with lawyers in the private bar (we call them “cooperating attorneys”);
    • drafting pleadings, including motions, briefs, and complaints; 
    • handling fact and expert discovery; 
    • trial work, including TRO and preliminary injunction proceedings;
    • conducting settlement negotiations; 
    • development of institutional-reform remedies and post-judgment monitoring; 
    • appellate brief writing and oral argument; and
    • other duties as may be required to meet ACLU-PA needs. 
  • Other important aspects of an ACLU-PA attorney’s job involve:
     
    • research and support for our Legislative program; 
    • advocacy work to advance civil rights through non-litigation means, such as writing public comments, public speaking, interactions with the press, know-your-rights presentations, and other public-education efforts;
    • developing and maintaining relationships with community members, coalition groups, experts, government officials, and academics to establish collaborative relationships to advance our work; 
    • intra-organizational work, including strategic planning, the practice of inclusive norms, participation in internal meetings, and collaboration with other ACLU affiliates and the National ACLU; and,
    • supervising law student interns.

Qualifications

Required Education/Experience

  • A J.D. from an ABA accredited law school 
  • Membership in the Pennsylvania Bar. If you are currently a member of another state bar, you must either be eligible to be admitted to the Pennsylvania Bar or sit for the next available Pennsylvania Bar examination and pass within twelve months
  • Litigation experience: one or more years of litigation experience in either federal or state court (a clerkship with a trial or appellate level court counts as litigation experience)

While no one person will have all of the skills and competencies enumerated below, the successful candidate should have many of the following:

  • Excellent legal research, analysis, and writing abilities 
  • Critical thinking skills, including:  being able to quickly grasp the subtleties of complex legal issues and identify patterns; the ability to come up with insightful, pragmatic, equitable, and sustainable ways to tackle common challenges and produce positive change; and, a successful track record of taking a concept from idea to implementation

  • Knowledge of and familiarity with racial equity and inclusion principles, including:  being able to recognize ways that race and other identities intersect in the work, especially with communities we serve; being comfortable talking about identities such as race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, class, ability, or gender in plain, specific terms; and, understanding the historical context for racial inequity and its present-day implications 
  • Ability to manage a variety of work, to prioritize among competing demands, to stay organized and keep things on track, to take initiative to move cases forward, and to know when and how to ask for help
  • Proven ability to work well on a team, to adapt quickly to changing circumstances, to pay attention to detail, to acknowledge mistakes, to be receptive to constructive feedback, and to be accountable and reliable 

Additional skills/competencies

  • Substantive knowledge of constitutional law 
  • Experience with federal civil rights litigation
  • Experience engaging in the investigation, development, and initiation of complex litigation, including drafting pleadings, discovery, motion practice, and handling hearings
