Staff Attorney

The Organization

The ACLU of Maine has an active annual legal docket of approximately 10-15 cases addressing a variety of issues. Our legal strategies are part of a multi-disciplinary approach to advocacy that integrates legal, policy, and communications tools and is built on the belief that fighting for civil liberties and rights means not just persuading judges but also gaining the support of policy makers, government officials and the general public.

The Position

The Staff Attorney will be responsible for developing civil liberties and civil rights impact litigation. The attorney will litigate individual and class action cases raising constitutional and statutory claims in Maine and federal courts, at trial and appellate levels, through direct representation and the filing of amicus briefs. The attorney should anticipate working in a range of civil liberties and civil rights areas. The Staff Attorney, in conjunction with the Legal Director, works closely with cooperating attorneys from private firms and with other public interest attorneys, including attorneys with the National ACLU and other ACLU affiliate offices.
