The Niskanen Center, a 501(c)(3) advocacy organization that works to change public policy through direct engagement in the policymaking process, seeks a lawyer with 3-5 years of litigation experience to join our legal team. The lawyer would work primarily on property rights issues created by the abuse of eminent domain by oil and gas pipeline companies, and potentially on public nuisance issues created by fossil fuel producers, cases challenging the Trump Administration’s immigration policies, and other interesting litigation. The lawyer will report to Niskanen’s chief counsel.
Excellent legal thinking and writing are essential, and an entrepreneurial attitude will be rewarded.
Benefits include premium health and dental coverage, flexible vacation policy, and professional development opportunities.
