2023 FALL AND 2024 SPRING LAW CLERK ANNOUNCEMENT
Job Title: Law Clerk
The Environmental Integrity Project (EIP) is seeking law clerks for fall of 2023 and spring of 2024 to advance environmental protections at the federal, state, and local levels under the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, and other federal and state environmental laws. This can either be a remote or in-person position.
The clerks’ duties will include legal research related to environmental, administrative, and information-collecting statutes and regulations, review of pollution permits and data, and production of legal memoranda, public comments, litigation documents, and issue-focused reports. Candidates with a background or coursework in environmental/administrative law and a demonstrated commitment to environmental protection are preferred.
EIP is a nonprofit organization established in March of 2002 by former EPA enforcement attorneys to advocate for more effective enforcement of environmental laws. The organization has three objectives: (1) to provide objective analyses of how the failure to enforce or implement environmental laws increases pollution and affects the public’s health; (2) to hold federal and state agencies, as well as individual corporations, accountable for failing to enforce or comply with environmental laws; and (3) to help local communities obtain the protection of environmental laws.
Qualifications: Currently enrolled law students are eligible to apply. Applications from current 1L/rising 2L students will be considered. Candidates preferably should have completed at least one year of law school and have a strong interest in environmental advocacy.

Previous experience with the Clean Air Act and/or the Clean Water Act, developing or litigating cases, commenting on or challenging permits or rules, policy analysis, media outreach, and/or coalition building would also be helpful. Candidates should be able to handle multiple tasks at once and work well with others, and must demonstrate strong writing and analytical skills.
Compensation: Academic credit and/or hourly wage. EIP can provide both in the event your law school’s policies expressly permit students to receive academic credit for paid externships.
Hours: Fall 2023: Full- or part-time. This position can be either remote or in-person.
Spring 2024: Full- or part-time. This position can be either remote or in-person.
