Supervising Attorney

Illinois, Chicago, 60601 Chicago USA
 
Full-time

Job Description

Beyond is looking for an experienced litigation attorney with federal court and impact litigation experience. Preference will be given to those with criminal defense and employment law expertise. Preference may also be given to those who are fluent in Spanish, are from Beyond’s partner communities, or have experience working with community organizers. Candidates need to have a genuine interest in community lawyering. The supervising attorney will have three primary responsibilities: 1) developing and overseeing Beyond’s complex litigation caseload, 2) expanding Beyond’s innovative participatory defense and community-driven litigation strategies across all practice areas, and 3) supervising and mentoring staff attorneys.

Qualifications

The candidate must have a minimum of 5 years of litigation experience. Candidates should also have experience in training attorneys and possess strong organizational skills. They must be prepared to work non-traditional hours—some evenings and the occasional weekend day—and in non-traditional, multiple locations; in exchange, they are afforded great flexibility in work schedule. The salary for the supervising attorney will be based upon experience. Benefits include medical and dental insurance, travel reimbursement, generous paid time off, and coverage of professional fees.

Additional Information

Beyond’s staff attorneys are part of the National Organization of Legal Services Workers, UAW Local 2320, AFL-CIO. Employment terms are set by our collective bargaining agreement (CBA), and compensation ranges from $60,500 - $72,500 as determined by the CBA salary scale based upon experience. Benefits include medical and dental insurance, travel reimbursement, 401(k) plan, generous paid time off, coverage of court and professional fees. Depending on experience, there may be an opportunity for the selected candidate to be promoted to senior attorney.

Beyond is an equal opportunity workplace and is committed to working closely and effectively with the communities that we serve. Individuals self-identifying as people of color, LGBTQI, socio-economically diverse, persons with a disability, or as otherwise having backgrounds and experiences underrepresented in the legal profession are highly encouraged to apply.

To apply, send a cover letter, resume, references, and recent case writing sample to hiring @beyondlegalaid.org. We will accept applications until the positions are filled.
