The post holder will advocate for the protection of the UK’s marine environment and good management of fisheries as the UK prepares to leave the European Union. The UK Fisheries Lawyer will be active in ClientEarth’s legal and policy research in relation to Brexit and the marine environment, with a strong focus both on carrying out advocacy of ClientEarth’s recommendations to decision-makers and on collaborating with other NGOs.

The successful candidates for these roles will be qualified lawyers with at least 3-5 years' experience of relevant legal practice, excellent legal analysis skills and will be keen to use these to support public interest environmental advocacy work.
