Outstanding Litigation Secretary Needed

Put your superstar legal secretarial skills to use making the world a better place, and the digital world a freer place. The Electronic Frontier Foundation, an internationally renowned, donor-funded non-profit devoted to protecting online civil liberties, is seeking an outstanding legal secretary. 

The litigation secretary will join a team that supports 17 attorneys who practice in almost every jurisdiction in the US. The ideal candidate should be extremely proficient in preparing and filing documents, mostly in federal court, including understanding the federal and local rules, running tables, proofreading, etc., and have solid organizational skills. We already have one outstanding secretary and additional support staff who can provide some training. But we’re looking for someone who can hit the ground running. The ideal candidate will be Mac-proficient and have at least three years of relevant legal secretarial experience (and more is welcome). If you are a superstar at Word, can calendar in your sleep, can recite the formatting requirements in the Central District of California by memory, are comfortable with dogs and passionate about civil liberties, then you might just be the person we’re looking for.

EFF is an amazing place to work. EFF offers outstanding benefits, including health, dental, vision, 403(b) retirement account with employer contributions, 14 paid holidays a year, 20 PTO days a year, a dog friendly work environment and more. Everyone is dedicated not only to protecting civil liberties online, but also to creating a supportive and fun culture in which to do all this amazing work. Starting salary is $70,000 a year (plus benefits, which can include rental payment assistance). 

If you think you’d be a good fit, please apply by submitting your resume, references and a cover letter explaining your litigation support experience and any interest or familiarity with EFF and its issues here.

We prefer applicants follow the above link to apply online but if necessary applications can be sent to legalsecretaryjob@eff.org. NO PHONE CALLS PLEASE.
