The Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law is a nonpartisan law and policy institute that seeks to improve our systems of democracy and justice. We work to hold our political institutions and laws accountable to the twin American ideals of democracy and equal justice for all. Among our core priorities, we fight to protect voting rights, end mass incarceration, strengthen checks and balances, and preserve Constitutional protection in the fight against terrorism. Part think tank, part advocacy group, part cutting-edge communications hub, we start with rigorous research. We craft innovative policies. And we fight for them — in Congress and the states, the courts, and in the court of public opinion.
Position: The Brennan Center seeks an exceptional attorney to work in the Democracy Program, primarily on our Voting Rights and Elections project. The Voting Rights and Elections project works to ensure that voting is free, fair, and accessible for all citizens of the United States. Team members work to advance these goals through a combination of advocacy, litigation, academic research and writing, media communications, public education, and legislative drafting. The ideal candidate will have had one or more of the following experiences: senior-level positions in politics or government, Supreme Court or appellate litigation experience, preferably in civil rights cases, and success at running and winning statewide campaigns.
