About the Role

We're looking for the next attorney to help build our nonprofit and fight for animals.
Want to join our team on the ground floor?
About us:
Legal Impact for Chickens (LIC) is a 501(c)(3) litigation nonprofit. We work to protect farmed animals.
LIC's first case, a shareholder derivative suit against Costco executives for chicken neglect, appeared in The Washington Post, People, Yahoo News, Fox Business, CNN Business, and beyond.
Now, we’re looking for our next hire—An entrepreneurial litigator to help fight for animals!
About you:
* Zealous, creative, enthusiastic litigator
* Entrepreneurial spirit
* Passion for helping farmed animals
* Happy to roll up your sleeves and do all types of nonprofit startup work, beyond just litigation. You don’t need skills or experience in any other areas—only a willingness to try new things!
* Interest in entering a startup nonprofit on the ground floor, and helping to build something
* Fast learner
* Licensed to practice law in the state where you live (or planning to become licensed)
* Kind to our fellow humans, and excited about creating a welcoming, inclusive team
About the role:
You will be an integral part of LIC. You’ll help shape our organization’s future.
Your role will be a combination of (1) designing and pursuing creative impact litigation for animals, and (2) helping with everything else we need to do, to run this new nonprofit!
Since this is such a small organization, you’ll wear many hats: Sometimes you may wear a law firm partner’s hat, making litigation strategy decisions or covering a hearing on your own. Sometimes you’ll pitch in on administrative tasks, making sure a brief gets filed properly or formatting a table of authorities. Sometimes you’ll wear a start-up founder’s hat, helping plan the number of employees we need, or representing LIC at conferences. We can only promise it won’t be dull!
This job offers tremendous opportunity for advancement, in the form of helping to lead LIC as we grow. The hope is for you to become an indispensable, long-time member of our new team. Commitment: Full time
Location and travel: This is a remote, U.S.-based position. You must be available to travel for work as needed, since we will litigate all over the country. (Disabilities will be accommodated!)
Reports to: Alene Anello, LIC’s president
Salary: $80,000–$110,000


About the Organisation

LIC brings strategic lawsuits for chickens and other farmed animals. We develop and refine creative methods to civilly enforce existing cruelty laws in factory farms, and to sue companies that break animal-welfare commitments.
