Earth Justice Associate Attorney, Denver, Colorado

The Rocky Mountain Office of Earthjustice, located in Denver, Colorado, is seeking applicants for two Associate Attorneys to begin work in the summer or fall of 2016.
The Rocky Mountain Office has nine attorneys, including this position, handling a range of cases involving, among other things, the protection of public lands and wildlife from fracking, mining and off-road vehicle damage; species protection under the Endangered Species Act; defending important riparian areas from groundwater pumping; challenging the mining and combustion of coal and oil shale; and utility rate-setting proceedings to expand clean energy sources like rooftop solar.  We are also helping communities fight off environmental impacts from uranium mining and milling in Utah and in the greater Grand Canyon area, and we anticipate growing our environmental justice docket.  Our goal is to produce the highest quality legal work in a diverse, inclusive, supportive environment.
