The Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law seeks a strategic, creative, and insightful Senior Legislative Counsel/Strategist—reporting to the Director of the Washington Office—to help broaden the Brennan Center’s reach, influence, and impact in Congress and the Executive Branch.
The Center—part think tank, part advocacy group, part cutting edge communications hub—is a nonpartisan law and policy institute that seeks to improve systems of democracy and justice within the United States. We work to hold our political institutions and laws accountable to the twin American ideals of democracy and equal justice for all. The Center’s work ranges from voting rights to campaign finance reform, from ending mass incarceration to preserving constitutional protections in the fight against terrorism.
Members of Congress and their staff, allies, and political leaders from across the political spectrum rely on our experts and research. Our policy proposals have been embraced by political leaders from both parties. Center staff appear widely in the media, testify at committee hearings, host and participate in Hill briefings, and help draft legislation. The Center’s work is routinely cited on newspaper front pages and in editorials, on television and radio, and in new media, including in the DC market.
We now aim to deepen our reach in among congressional members and their staff, and increase our impact in the nation’s capital. This is a new position in the Brennan Center’s growing Washington Office, which will require the incumbent to work closely with staff in both Washington and New York, including the Washington Office’s Policy Associate.
The ideal candidate would have:
Salary and Title: Commensurate with experience. Excellent benefits package.
