JOB ANNOUNCEMENT: Attorney - Death Penalty Litigation

Wednesday, August 23, 2006

  • Organization: Southern Center for Human Rights

ATTORNEY - DEATH PENALTY LITIGATION

The Southern Center for Human Rights has an opening for a brilliant, compassionate, and aggressive attorney with a lot of heart and stamina to represent men and women facing the ultimate sanction in the heart of the Death Belt. Experience in death-penalty litigation is strongly preferred, but not required. We are looking for someone with excellent legal skills, a keen awareness of the class and racial issues underlying the criminal justice system in the South, and an ability to establish relationships with people who may be mentally-ill, cognitively-disabled, and/or severely traumatized. The job is hard and the hours are long, but the reward more than compensates. The applicant must be willing to make a substantial commitment to the Center, to the Center's clients, and the Center's work.

Salary: $35,000 - 39,000 DOE, with additional stipend for law school loans if needed.

Send a resume, a legal writing sample, and contact information for three references to:
