Description

National Center for Youth Law

The National Center for Youth Law (NCYL) amplifies youth power, dismantles racism and other structural inequities, and builds just policies, practices, and culture in support of young people. Our efforts advance justice through research, community collaboration, impact litigation, and policy advocacy that fundamentally transforms our nation's approach to education, health, immigration, foster care, and youth justice. Our vision is a world in which every young person thrives and has a full and fair opportunity to achieve the future they envision for themselves.

Legal Advocacy Team

NCYL’s Legal Advocacy team engages in impact litigation across all the issues on which NCYL works. The team brings systemic cases to improve systems that serve children and youth, often in collaboration with other public interest law firms and with support from pro bono partners. Most of our cases are filed in federal court, but we do litigate in state court when appropriate. A description of our current cases can be found here: https://youthlaw.org/legal-advocacy-impact-litigation

Position

NCYL seeks to hire a dynamic and experienced impact litigator to lead and staff existing cases and develop new impact litigation on behalf of children and youth in a changing landscape characterized by increasing attacks on our civil rights. This position offers the opportunity to contribute to and develop litigation in the areas of education, child welfare, health, mental health, reproductive equity, juvenile justice, and immigration. We are seeking a highly motivated attorney interested in litigating across our practice areas. This role will focus on systemic litigation but may support NCYL’s other core program areas as they relate to our ongoing litigation efforts. This is a unique opportunity for advocates who want to use litigation to transform and dismantle government systems that often violate the rights of vulnerable children and youth.
