The Administrative Conference of the United States Is Hiring an Attorney Advisor

by Chris Walker — Wednesday, Feb. 11, 2015@chris_j_walker

I’ve previously blogged about the Administrative Conference of the United States (ACUS) here and here, and I’m a big fan of ACUS’s role in bridging the gap between the theory and practice of administrative law and improving administrative governance in the United States.

Yesterday ACUS announced that it is looking to hire a new attorney advisor. The full notice is available here, and the deadline to apply is March 9, 2015. Here’s the description of the position:

The attorney advisor will be responsible for researching and analyzing legal issues involving agency adjudication, rulemaking, collaborative governance, agency administration and management, judicial review of agency action, and related matters. Specific duties include: identifying appropriate subjects for reports and recommendations through extensive research and analysis; drafting research reports; working with outside consultants in preparing reports and recommendations; serving as staff counsel to one of the Conference’s committees; preparing workshops and similar events; presenting research findings to the Conference’s members; speaking at meetings of the Conference, professional associations, and law schools about the Conference’s work; and assisting with the implementation of the Conference’s recommendations. Opportunities may arise for the attorney advisor to submit his/her written work for publication.

And here’s the description of the qualifications they are looking for:

An applicant must hold a law degree from an accredited school, be a member in good standing of the bar in one of the 50 states or the District of Columbia, have worked for at least two years in full-time employment after graduating from law school, possess outstanding analytical and writing abilities, and work well in a collaborative environment. A background in administrative law or a related field is preferred.

The folks I know who work there love it, and it’s a dream job for any adlaw geek.
