Associate Position at Earth Justice in Seattle

The Northwest Office opened in Seattle in January 1987 to enable Earthjustice to take a more active role in preserving the unique natural resources and environment of the Pacific Northwest.Since that time, the Northwest office has undertaken campaigns to protect old growth forests, promote salmon recovery, improve water quality, protect Puget Sound, stop coal-fired power plants, address the impacts of pesticides, and respond to climate change, among other things. Although the primary focus of the Northwest office is representing environmental and citizens’ groups in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho, we often take cases with national and international scope. For example, the Northwest office is involved in cases seeking to stop coal exports to China and other countries from ports along the entire west coast as part of its effort to address global warming.

Our office is located in the heart of downtown Seattle near the federal and state courthouses, the waterfront, and historic Pioneer Square. Our goal is to produce the highest quality legal work in
a supportive and cooperative environment.
