In the United States and around the world, we wield the power of law and the strength of partnership to protect people's health; to preserve magnificent places and wildlife; to advance clean energy; and to combat climate change. We partner with thousands of groups, supporters, individuals and communities to engage the critical environmental issues of our time, and bring about positive change. We are here because the earth needs a good lawyer. Founded in 1971, Earthjustice has a distinguished track record of achieving significant, lasting environmental protections.

Please visit the links listed above to learn more about the litigation dockets of each of our offices and programs that are interested in sponsoring a legal fellow. Fellowship Projects: Earthjustice does not require fellowship applicants to have a specific project; legal fellows may work on litigation and advocacy strategies that are in place or in development. However, some funders require fellows to develop specific projects. For example, the Equal Justice Works fellowship requires applicants to develop a project with the help of a sponsoring organization. For more information about Equal Justice Works fellowships, click here. While some law school funded fellowships do not require identification of a specific project, if yours does we will consider applicants who already have ideas for projects or who would like to develop a project with Earthjustice's help. Project proposals must be consistent with Earthjustice's mission and the subject matter of the particular program or office to which you are applying. Proposals that advance Earthjustice's interest in serving communities carrying disproportionate health, climate, or energy burdens are of particular interest. Over the span of their fellowship, each legal fellow will work closely with experienced Earthjustice attorneys, policy and communications staff, and clients to develop and implement litigation and advocacy strategies, and will participate in the full range of tasks involved, such as factual investigation, legal research, discovery, briefing, witness preparation, and oral advocacy. Who We Are Looking For: Earthjustice seeks highly qualified candidates who possess outstanding legal research and writing skills, are emotionally intelligent, and are capable of working with diverse colleagues, clients, and partners. Applicants should be third-year law students, judicial clerks, or other recent law school graduates who are eligible for post-graduate fellowships funded by Equal Justice Works, their law school, or another third party. Applicants should have a strong academic record, strong work ethic and sense of initiative, sound and creative judgment, and an ability to work well in a collegial setting. Acquiring Fellowship Funding: If selected by Earthjustice, the candidates will be responsible for securing funding from Equal Justice Works, their law school, or another source. Fellowship funding typically covers full-time employment over one or two years. Candidates should identify potential sources of funding before applying but do not need to have secured such funding at the time of their application. Please note that deadlines for applying for third-party funding vary based on source, with applications to some fellowship programs such as Equal Justice Works due as early as September 2019. To please submit the following application materials: - Cover letter that addresses: (1) why you are drawn to Earthjustice and whether there are particular legal, environmental, or justice issues that inspire you, (2) the offices and/or programs that you are interested in - this should appear in the subject line of your cover letter, and (3) if your fellowship will necessitate identifying a specific project proposal, please note whether you have developed such a proposal (optional to include a short description, no longer than 1 page) or would prefer to develop a project jointly with Earthjustice. - Resume - Writing Sample, preferably a legal brief or memorandum - Law school transcript Application Deadlines For Equal Justice Works, applications are due by August 12, 2019 For fellowships funded through a law school or other sources, applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis starting in December.
