The BCCLA is seeking a litigation lawyer who is passionate about using their legal skills to uphold civil liberties and human rights in Canada.
The Litigation Staff Counsel will develop and litigate impact-driven cases on a wide range of issues at the trial and appellate levels of court.
With a mandate that includes work on police accountability, government transparency, voting rights, prisoners’ rights, national security issues and more, we are one of the most vibrant and visible advocacy groups in Canada.
Responsibilities include developing and litigating impact‑driven cases on a wide range of issues at the trial and appellate levels of court, and acting for the BCCLA in test cases, often in partnership with pro bono lawyers. The Litigation Staff Counsel will represent the BCCLA publicly through speaking engagements and media interviews, and collaborate with staff in other departments to set goals and implement strategies that advance the BCCLA’s priorities.
The BCCLA is a small team with a big reach, and we want you to be part of our work.
The BCCLA is committed to building an inclusive and diverse workplace and strongly encourages applications from all qualified applicants. Applicants from traditionally underrepresented or marginalized groups including Indigenous people, people of colour and LGBTQ+ people are welcome to self-identify, should they feel comfortable in doing so, in their cover letter.
Applications must be uploaded to this recruiting site by the end of the day on July 16, 2018. We will be reviewing applications on a rolling basis, so it is to a candidate’s advantage to apply sooner rather than later.
