For nearly 100 years, the ACLU has been our nation’s guardian of liberty, working in courts, legislatures, and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States. The Center for Justice focuses on America’s system of crime and punishment. There is a growing consensus among criminal justice experts and policymakers that America’s criminal justice system has relied too heavily on incarceration as the first and often only response to behavior that could better be addressed through other means. The issues of race and class permeate the entire criminal justice system. This is a critical time in the fight to truly reform the criminal justice system.
The Center for Justice contains three Projects – the Capital Punishment Project, the National Prison Project, and the Criminal Law Reform Project. These projects allow us to focus our work on the critical aspects of the system that must be challenged and changed to achieve true “criminal justice.” We are working to end mass incarceration by changing and challenging core issues in the system regarding the laws we enact, the sentencing policies we pursue, who we decide to call criminals, and how we treat those suspected of or convicted of crimes. The ACLU is taking on the toughest civil liberties cases and issues to remake and reform the criminal justice system in America. With more than a million members, activists, and supporters, the ACLU is a nationwide organization that fights tirelessly in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and Washington, D.C., not only for true criminal justice, but for the principle that every individual’s rights must be protected equally under the law, regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, or national origin.
The Center for Justice of the ACLU’s National office seeks applications for a Staff Attorney who will report to the Director of the Center for Justice. The successful candidate may choose to be based either in New York City or Washington, D.C.
All three Projects rely on strategic litigation, advocacy, public education, and communications to advance the Project goals. The Projects also conduct lawyer trainings, participate in public education conferences, and provide expert advice and technical assistance to activists and lawyers throughout the country. The Projects work with state affiliates to advance their criminal justice agendas, and each of the Projects has a focus on the racial disparities that exist in their respective work.
The National Prison Project (NPP) seeks to ensure constitutional conditions of confinement in prisons, jails, juvenile facilities, and immigration detention facilities and is the only organization litigating conditions of confinement cases nationwide on behalf of men, women, and children. NPP also leads the nationwide Stop Solitary campaign, which works to end the excessive and inappropriate use of solitary confinement. NPP’s policy priorities include reducing prison overcrowding, improving prison healthcare, eliminating violence and maltreatment, and increasing oversight and accountability in prisons, jails, and other places of detention.
The Criminal Law Reform Project (CLRP) seeks to end excessively harsh criminal justice policies that result in mass incarceration and stand in the way of a just and equal society. CLRP focuses its work at the “front end” of the criminal justice system, with an emphasis on reforming abusive bail practices, ending unnecessary and prolonged pretrial detention, and protecting the right to counsel, including current litigation and advocacy across the nation to support public defenders in their struggle to provide quality defense services to poor people. CLRP also challenges racially biased enforcement of criminal laws, seeks to end the unjustified police use of force, and is promoting an affirmative platform for policing in the 21st century that emphasizes moving from a warrior to a guardian approach.
The Capital Punishment Project (CPP) seeks national abolition of the death penalty. CPP uses litigation, legislation, public education, and communications advocacy strategies to advance abolition by fighting to reduce the death penalty’s use and acceptance nationwide. CPP’s strategic litigation includes efforts to expand categorical exemptions to the death penalty and systemic litigation about the death penalty’s racially biased and arbitrary application. The litigation work spans from individual representation of death row inmates in places like the Deep South to amicus efforts in a wide range of state and federal courts, including the United States Supreme Court.
The Staff Attorney will report to the Director of the Center for Justice and will contribute to all aspects of the Center’s litigation and non-litigation work. Initially, the responsibilities of this position will focus on current NPP prisoner conditions class actions in federal court, working closely with other staff attorneys and local counsel. Over time, the focus of the job will include cases brought or worked on by NPP and CLRP as well as projects with or assigned by the Director of the Center for Justice. Specific responsibilities will include but not be limited to:
· Litigating in state and federal courts, including appellate courts, throughout the country, including researching and drafting pleadings and briefs, engaging in discovery and motion practice, and conducting evidentiary hearings and oral arguments.
· Analyzing legislation for potential litigation.
· Providing technical assistance and expert legal advice to local ACLU affiliates, cooperating attorneys, and others who seek assistance from the Center for Justice.
· Developing new cases and non-litigation advocacy projects.
· Engaging in public speaking and articulating ACLU views to a variety of audiences on a broad range of prisoners’ rights, criminal justice, and civil liberties issues.
· Supervising paralegals.
· J.D. degree and a minimum of seven years of litigation experience, preferably in federal court, including experience as lead counsel. Individuals with more experience are strongly encouraged to apply. Responsibilities will be commensurate with experience and demonstrated skill level.
· Appropriate bar membership permitting practice in New York or Washington D.C.
· A demonstrated commitment to civil liberties, racial justice, and public interest law.
· A demonstrated ability to work independently as well as within a team. Ability to foster and contribute to a collaborative team environment is essential.
· Excellent legal research skills.
· Demonstrated ability to perform complex legal analytical work.
· Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal.
· Self-motivated, diligent, and able to meet strict deadlines while under pressure.
· Familiarity with criminal justice issues preferred.
· Ability to travel.
