The Fellow will work under the direction of senior attorneys and with other NRDC staff on all phases of litigation, from case development through trial and appeals.  The Fellow may also engage in some administrative advocacy, policy research, and legislative analysis.
The Fellow will be located in either NRDC’s San Francisco or Washington, DC, office.
