Earth Justice Litigation Associate

Earthjustice is now accepting applications for an associate attorney to join our International Program, located in San Francisco, CA. The International Program works with public interest and community groups around the world to establish, strengthen, and enforce national and international legal protections for the environment and public health. 

Core focus areas of Earthjustice’s international efforts include combating climate change, reducing the world’s dependence on coal-fired power and promoting clean energy in its stead, building marine resilience to ocean acidification, and promoting citizen participation in environmental protection. At the heart of our work is the principle—which we were the first organization to advocate internationally—that all people have a right to a healthy and sustainable environment.

The Associate Attorney program comprises a two-year position with a possible extension for a third year. This program is designed to help attorneys develop into thoughtful, professional, and effective advocates skilled in the various phases of public interest litigation. Many associates have gone on to other positions within Earthjustice or with other public interest organizations.
