NEA seeks an experienced attorney to join the team in the NEA Office of General Counsel. The NEA Office of General Counsel works on a diverse array of legal matters to advance NEA’s overall mission including litigation, regulatory and advocacy matters. The NEA Office of General Counsel’s caseload includes cases in the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Courts of Appeals, and a small number of state appellate courts and administrative forums. In addition, the NEA Office of General Counsel frequently presents the views of NEA on federal regulatory initiatives affecting NEA, NEA affiliates and their members and leaders. The NEA Office of General Counsel also administers the National Organization of Lawyers for Educational Associations (“NOLEA”), which is a national network of lawyers representing school employees and their associations. To that end, the NEA Office of General Counsel maintains a NOLEA groupsite, regularly circulates an E-Letter update of legal developments to NOLEA members, and holds an annual education conference.
