Earthjustice’s Toxic Exposure & Health Program litigates in state and federal court and conducts administrative and legislative advocacy to ensure that all people have safe workplaces, neighborhoods, and schools; have access to safe drinking water and food; and live in homes that are free of hazardous chemicals. We partner with and represent groups that face the greatest exposure to and risks from hazardous chemicals, including the communities surrounding the facilities where those chemicals are manufactured, used, and released.
The Earthjustice Summer Clerkship position includes a weekly stipend of $1,280 a week, with the average clerkship lasting 10 weeks (approximately $12,800 total). The total stipend amount will be dependent on the extent of a clerk’s ability to secure outside funding. Earthjustice will pay $1,280 a week less the total amount received from other sources. We strongly encourage candidates to pursue outside funding, but the ability to secure outside funding will not be considered as part of the hiring decision. Note the stipend is taxed, so stipend payments are less applicable taxes.
Applications will close on September 23, 2022. We recommend submitting your application as soon as it is ready.
