The Electronic Frontier Foundation is hiring a new staff copyright/trademark litigator, and “experience with or strong interest in patent, unfair competition, administrative law, privacy and/or First Amendment litigation is preferred but not required.”
It’s a junior position for litigators with 3+ years of experience, based in San Francisco. EFF is committed to diverse hiring and encourages applicants of “all races, genders, ages, abilities, orientations, ethnicities, and national origins.”
Fun fact! 14 years ago, Corynne McSherry responded to a job listing here for a new EFF copyright lawyer, and now she’s EFF’s legal director!
The Electronic Frontier Foundation is looking for a litigator who is excited about fostering digital creativity, justice and innovation to join our legal team. Ideal candidates will have substantial experience in copyright and/or trademark litigation. Experience with or strong interest in patent, unfair competition, administrative law, privacy and/or First Amendment litigation is preferred but not required.
Responsibilities will include all aspects of litigation, including case development and management; writing amicus briefs; blogging and other social media writing; public speaking and media appearances; consulting on policy matters related to technology and the public interest; and occasional direct client counseling
This is a junior-level position, but candidates must have at least 3 years of litigation experience. That experience should include: devising and carrying out case strategy, and handling day-to-day projects and deadlines. Candidates must have excellent writing and analytical skills and an eagerness to be part of a team of highly motivated lawyers and activists working collaboratively in a nonprofit environment. We value candidates who bring diverse experiences and perspectives, professional and otherwise, to our team and to EFF as a whole.
Tech savviness and a familiarity with issues at the intersection of technology and the public interest are strongly preferred; an eagerness to learn is essential.
