This position provides an exciting opportunity for an experienced attorney who wants to use teaching and leadership skills to increase the quality and quantity of advocacy in Oregon.  The director of litigation can make a real difference for low-income clients in Oregon.

Requirements:  Demonstrated commitment to serving low-income communities.  A high degree of initiative and willingness to work collaboratively.  Strong interpersonal communication skills.  Extensive experience handling complex litigation at the trial and appellate levels in state and federal courts.  Experience teaching advocacy skills to attorneys and acting as a mentor.  Experience as a manager and leader in law firm or legal aid office.  Experience working on legal aid issues and the systems used to provide high quality civil legal services to low-income people.  Knowledge of legal aid in Oregon and connections to the leaders in Oregon is a plus.  Must have at least fifteen years of relevant experience.
