This position requires significant collaboration with Department components and other agencies on policy, legislation, and regulatory issues. As needed, this position may also involve assisting in OLP’s work relating to judicial nominations on an occasional basis. Willingness to work on topics outside a specific area of expertise is also expected.
Applicants must possess a J.D. degree, have at least three years of post-J.D. legal experience, have strong research and writing skills, and be an active member of the bar of any state (or the District of Columbia).

A demonstrated ability to navigate complex issue areas with competing interests and build consensus is a significant plus.
Current salary and years of experience will determine the appropriate salary level ranging from GS-13 ($103,690 - $134,798) to GS-15 ($144,128 - $172,500) and/or its AD equivalent.
