    Posted: May 3, 2018

    Description

    The Prison Law Office, located in Berkeley, California, is seeking a staff attorney to investigate, litigate and monitor conditions in correctional facilities.

    Staff attorneys play a leading role in the litigation of individual and class claims on behalf of incarcerated people, from fact-gathering and initial case research through discovery, motion practice, settlement negotiations, and trial and appellate work. Attorneys are expected to be proficient in legal research, writing, and oral advocacy. Much of our work involves post-trial remedial monitoring and remedial litigation practice on long-running state-wide class actions; attorneys frequently tour correctional facilities and interview incarcerated people to monitor compliance.  >
