Staff Attorney


Overview

The Center for Climate Integrity (CCI) seeks a Staff Attorney to support the organization’s mission to empower communities and elected officials with the knowledge and tools they need to hold polluters accountable for their contributions to the climate crisis.

Founded in mid-2017, CCI is scaling up national and local efforts on several fronts: supporting municipalities and states in efforts to hold the fossil fuel industry accountable for climate adaptation and resilience costs; protecting access to courts to ensure that communities have the right to sue to recover costs; and elevating the industry’s deception and denial across a variety of audiences and channels. Through campaigns, communications, and strategic legal support, we work to ensure that the fossil fuel industry is held accountable for its fraud and deception and for the costs associated with the climate damages that it has caused.

The Center for Climate Integrity is an all-remote organization and the staff attorney will be expected to have excellent time management and communication skills.

  • Monitoring ongoing climate liability cases and helping to develop guidance on media messaging as appropriate; and
  • Assisting with the development of programs/events that educate the legal community on the need for climate accountability.

  • Superior communication and interpersonal skills; ability to work with multiple staff and stakeholders across a decentralized organization;
  • Excellent writing and presentation skills;
  • A flexible approach to work, with a willingness to travel, as needed;
  • Familiarity with climate litigation and advocacy.
