The position is a full-time ongoing position, but 4 days will be considered. The role reports to the Senior Specialist Lawyer (Ecosystems Lead). You will be based in Melbourne at our office in Carlton, with travel outside Melbourne required occasionally. Other locations will be considered for an exceptional candidate.
You must be admitted to practice or eligible for admission to practice in Australia. Experience in environmental law and litigation is essential, with public law experience highly desirable.

First Nations Lawyer
Are you an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander person who wants to help First Nations communities in Victoria to care for Country? We’re starting a new program that builds on our work with First Nations peoples, using environmental law to protect Aboriginal interests.
You will work closely with First Nations individuals, organisations and communities to understand their legal needs and work with them to overcome the legal barriers that stop First Nations peoples from exercising their caring for Country rights and obligations.
