The Foundation has an opening for a Staff Attorney. Foundation Staff Attorneys provide free legal aid and assistance to workers subjected to the abuses of compulsory unionism or opposed to unionization of their workplace, including representing such workers in federal and state courts and before labor relations agencies such as the National Labor Relations Board. New Staff Attorneys work under the informal mentoring of experienced senior Staff Attorneys. Foundation attorneys also analyze proposed federal and state legislation to determine its effect on workers' rights vis-à-vis unions and review draft news releases prepared by the Foundation's Legal Information Department about the attorneys' cases.
A law degree, an excellent law school record, and admission to the practice of law in at least one state or the District of Columbia are required. Law review experience and at least one year of practice are preferred, but not required. Spanish language fluency also is desirable. Applicants must be committed to the cause of worker free choice. Applications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and should include a resume, list of references, law school and undergraduate transcripts, a legal writing sample, and salary requirements.
