Description

Georgetown Law’s Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection (ICAP) uses strategic legal advocacy to defend constitutional rights and values while working to restore people's confidence in the integrity of their governmental institutions. ICAP’s experienced team uses novel litigation tools and strategic policy development to safeguard rights to free expression, assembly, and democratic participation; combat threats from unlawful private militias and political violence; fight the criminalization of poverty and other forms of criminal legal system overreach; and defend the rights of young people and marginalized communities.

ICAP is a workplace that values passion for the mission, a commitment to collaboration, and excellence in all we do.

ICAP seeks an Operations Manager to work with ICAP’s leadership team (Executive Director, Legal Director, and Supreme Court Director) to ensure that ICAP’s financial, operational, and administrative processes advance ICAP's mission and enable the smooth functioning of the Institute. As a key member of our team, the Operations Manager is charged with developing and implementing processes related to budgeting, fundraising, administration, and procurement, and with supporting ICAP’s public messaging and communications efforts.
