Law and Policy Fellow
The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights


The Leadership Conference Law and Policy Fellow will focus on legislative and legal research and advocacy on a wide range of civil rights issues. Responsibilities include: researching and writing legal memos on current civil rights issues; tracking the development of relevant civil rights legislation, regulations, and litigation; monitoring and analyzing legislative, administrative, and other policy proposals of interest to coalition members; proposing legislative and policy reforms; designing and drafting a variety of advocacy materials, such as talking points, congressional letters, fact sheets, and agency comments; performing direct outreach with policymakers and coalition building with member organizations; attending meetings and briefings with partner organizations and policymakers; managing undergraduate and legal interns on individual projects; helping the organization respond to breaking news and events that impact civil rights; helping to develop overall legislative strategies and policy priorities for the organization; and providing administrative support as needed. In addition, the fellowship will provide an opportunity to work with leaders and national staff of many of The Leadership Conference’s member organizations, as well as to learn firsthand about how policy experts collaborate with our communications and field teams to maximize the coalition’s impact on law and policy at the local, state, and national levels.
