Remote Volunteering Position - Climate Litigation

We are looking for highly motivated persons with a law degree for an online position that focuses on a potential game changer for the climate: climate litigation.

LINGO has produced a wiki on Climate Litigation earlier this year: https://climatelitigation.miraheze.org/

Now we are looking to:

1) Update it with the latest litigation experiences from around the world, as well as best practices and precedents to build on.

2) Reach out to law students and lawyers concerned about the climate emergency to spark further climate litigation cases.

The field of climate litigation is very dynamic at the moment and you will build a network in one of the most important topics of our time.

Requirements: 

  • Law degree or comparable legal background
  • A computer with internet connection
  • Minimum 2 months full-time equivalent commitment
  • Ready to take on responsibility

Optional:

  • Experience in activism, environmental initiatives, writing engaging texts, internet research
  • Previous experience in climate litigation

About LINGO

LINGO stands for "Leave it in the Ground Initiative" and works at one of the key fronts for stopping run-away climate change: keeping fossil fuels in the ground and transitioning to a 100% clean energy world. We aim at ending fossil fuel burning in years, not decades and to this end develop high-impact, game-changing initiatives around coal, oil and gas extraction, in defense of a healthy planet.
