Update (10/15/2012) — This position has been filled.
Kanji & Katzen, PLLC, with offices in Seattle, Washington, and Ann Arbor, Michigan, seeks an attorney for either office. Kanji & Katzen’s nationwide legal practice focuses exclusively on the representation of tribes, tribal organizations, and tribal members. The firm assists tribes in protecting their sovereignty, their natural and cultural resources, and their lands, and in pursuing economic development projects. The firm expects its attorneys to devote their careers to advocacy on behalf of tribes.
Applicants should possess a stellar academic and professional record and a commitment to tribal representation. We prefer that applicants have 2-7 years of practicing or judicial clerkship experience subsequent to law school, but such experience is not an absolute requirement for highly qualified applicants. Prior experience in the field of Indian law, while helpful, is not a pre-requisite to employment.
The firm offers competitive salaries and an opportunity to hone advocacy skills in a wide variety of interesting settings.
To apply, please send by email a cover letter, resume, law school transcript, and a writing sample addressed to Phil Katzen, firstname.lastname@example.org.
