Lawyer or Senior Lawyer – First Nations program

We have an exciting new position for a Lawyer or Senior Lawyer to help develop and implement EJA’s program to support First Nations communities in Victoria to care for Country. You will work closely with First Nations individuals, organisations and communities to understand their legal needs and develop strategies to overcome the legal barriers that stop First Nations peoples from exercising their caring for Country rights and obligations. The issues you will work on may include water management and cultural flows, cultural burning, forest protection, and management and marine protection. You will work with our First Nations Community Engagement Officer and head of our Justice team to deliver the project.

As we have not been successful in finding a First Nations candidate for this position so far, the position is now open to all interested candidates.

Applications close Sunday 23 October 2022 at 11.59pm.
