Associate Attorney, Sustainable Food and Farming; EarthJustice

Earthjustice’s Sustainable Food and Farming Program is seeking an Associate Attorney to conduct legal advocacy and litigation.  The position is available immediately and is located in New York, NY.

The Sustainable Food and Farming Program, within the Healthy Communities Department, engages in litigation and advocacy to improve our nation’s food system, from crop selection and farming practices to food processing and sustainability.  Working in partnership with communities, advocacy groups, scientists, and others, we fight for safe and healthy food, climate-friendly farming, reduced reliance on dangerous pesticides and chemical fertilizers, and animal farms—not animal factories.  We take on cases with regional and national scope.

  • Participate in the full range of tasks involved in administrative advocacy and complex litigation, including factual investigation, legal research, memo writing, briefing, and oral advocacy.

The Associate Attorney position is a three-year position with the opportunity for extension. Many Associate have gone on to other positions within Earthjustice and with other public interest organizations. The Associate Attorney program is designed to help attorneys who are in the early stages of their careers to develop into thoughtful, professional, and effective advocates skilled in the various phases of public interest litigation. Associate Attorneys gain experience, they gradually take on more independent responsibilities for their cases, but work throughout their tenure under the supervision of a Staff Attorney or a Deputy Managing Attorney or the Managing Attorney.
