Thank you to everyone here who has supported Legal Impact for Chickens in various ways.
Legal Impact for Chickens is hiring again! Please forward widely!
Legal Impact for Chickens seeks a litigator.
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?
Legal Impact for Chickens (LIC) is a 501(c)(3) litigation nonprofit. We work to protect farmed animals.
You may have seen our Costco shareholder derivative suit in The Washington Post, Fox Business, or CNN Business—or even on TikTok.
Now, we’re looking for our next hire: an entrepreneurial litigator to help fight for animals!
• Licensed and in good standing with your state bar
• 3+ years of litigation experience preferred
• Excellent analytical, writing, and verbal-communication skills
• Zealous, creative, enthusiastic litigator
• Passion for helping farmed animals
• Interest in entering a startup nonprofit on the ground floor, and helping to build something
• Willingness to do all types of nonprofit startup work, beyond just litigation
• Strong work ethic and initiative
• Love of learning
• 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 wear an associate’s hat, analyzing complex and novel legal issues. 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.
Reports to: Alene Anello, LIC’s president
Salary: $80,000–$100,000 depending on experience
Benefits: Health insurance, 401(k), flexible schedule, unlimited PTO (plus mandatory vacation!)
