Foreign Service Attorney
U.S. Agency for International Development
Washington, D.C.
Salary: $106,626 to $169,807 per year

USAID is the world's premier international development agency and a catalytic actor driving development results. USAID works to help lift lives, build communities, and advance democracy. USAID's work advances U.S. national security and economic prosperity; demonstrates American generosity; and promotes a path to recipient self-reliance and resilience. We operate in five regions of the world: Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Latin America and the Caribbean, and Europe and Eurasia. 

USAID seeks the best-qualified professional candidates who are willing to make a long-term career commitment to the Foreign Service and international development. A career in the Foreign Service (FS) is a commitment to public service, supporting the diplomatic and development goals of the United States.  Our Foreign Service Officers work alongside Civil Service employees and contracted staff in our offices in Washington, DC and overseas. 

USAID currently has 62 staff members in the Office of the General Counsel in Washington, comprised of Civil Service and Foreign Service attorneys, paralegals, administrative, and support staff. Foreign Service staff members are primarily based overseas with periodic postings in Washington. USAID has 49 Foreign Service attorneys stationed in 38 field missions as Resident Legal Officers. Most tours of duty last two to four years.

Foreign Service attorneys overseas provide legal advice to USAID Missions. Missions plan and implement overseas activities and are typically co-located with U.S. embassies and consulates. Legal work focuses on matters of U.S. and international law applicable to assistance programs and personnel overseas. The work is fast-paced, with attorneys regularly facing highly complex and novel legal and policy issues arising from emerging international events and assistance priorities.

USAID offers a robust career skills training program. Attorneys enjoy a high rate of personal satisfaction and professional success within the ranks of USAID's Foreign Service. A Foreign Service career can also involve difficult living and working conditions that require a strong commitment to the Agency's mission. Attorneys serve most of their careers overseas at various USAID missions in developing countries after an initial training period in Washington, D.C., of one to two years, unless Agency requirements necessitate an earlier assignment overseas. New entrants begin their careers in a formal training program, followed by rotational on-the-job, Washington DC-based training for 12-18 months, which may include foreign language training. After completion of Washington training, new entrants are assigned to an overseas mission. This initial assignment is a directed assignment where the Agency's Human Capital and Talent Management office determines the optimal placement for the new employee, taking into consideration the employee's prior experience and family situation. After completing the initial posting, the employee enters USAID's competitive bidding system where all Foreign Service Officers express their preferences for follow-on assignments in line with bidding instructions. All Foreign Service Officers should anticipate serving at hard to fill countries multiple times during their careers.

New Foreign Service Officers have five years in which to earn tenure in the Foreign Service. Tenure requirements include foreign language proficiency and successful performance during at least three years in the agency, of which 18 months must have been on a permanent overseas assignment in one of USAID's field offices. 

Foreign Service Officers must be world-wide available for assignments.  Although personal desires are taken into account, postings are ultimately made based on Agency needs.  Attorneys should expect to serve at least one 1-year tour in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, and/or South Sudan, which are unaccompanied posts.  Attorneys may also be assigned to other hardship posts, such as Bangladesh, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Haiti, Mali, Nigeria, and/or Sudan.

Foreign Service attorneys are leaders in Agency innovation and change. This entails crafting tailored solutions to new development challenges. Attorneys negotiate and draft international agreements and other instruments that serve the foreign policy and international development interests of the United States. Their expertise is regularly and urgently needed when the U.S. Government responds to international crises and events, such as natural disasters or political changes. USAID attorneys serve as key advisors on a wide range of legal and policy matters, such as project design and implementation, contracting and grant-making, international law, investment and credit activities, and personnel and ethics matters. Attorneys have significant engagement with partner country governments, international organizations, and both U.S. and foreign private entities. As a result, skills in cross-cultural communications and understanding are essential.

Prior overseas experience, especially in developing countries, and/or prior demonstrated interest in international development, while not required, helps in equipping candidates for work with USAID.

Qualifications
You must be a graduate of a law school accredited by the American Bar Association (or foreign equivalent).
You must currently be a member in good standing of the bar of a state, territory of the United States, District of Columbia, or Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
You must have a minimum of four years of post-law school experience practicing law (the position must have required a legal degree and involved providing legal services to clients; serving as a judicial clerk counts toward qualifying experience).
You must demonstrate an ability to communicate with and work well with a diverse range of clients and colleagues (including those from different cultures), spot legal issues, solve problems, and operate with minimal supervision.
You must demonstrate an ability to write and otherwise communicate professionally, clearly, and persuasively.

​Staff Attorney
National Veterans Legal Services Program
Washington, D.C.

Salary: Starting at $60,000

The National Veterans Legal Services Program (NVLSP) is a high-impact national veterans service organization based in Washington DC. Our mission is to ensure that the government delivers to our nation’s 22 million veterans and active duty personnel the benefits to which they are entitled due to the disabilities that resulted from their military service. NVLSP’s Lawyers Serving Warriors® (“LSW”) program provides free legal representation, through a nationwide pro bono network of private law firms and corporate legal departments, to disabled active duty personnel and veterans and their families.

NVLSP seeks a full-time staff attorney for its LSW project. LSW’s discharge upgrade program helps veterans apply to upgrade their characterization of service from “Other Than Honorable” (OTH) to a more favorable characterization such as Honorable. The discharge upgrade may help veterans receive VA benefits and health care, improve employment opportunities, and restore reputation and self-esteem. Many clients have Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injuries (TBI), or other mental health conditions that are related to military service.

In addition, NVLSP handles discharge upgrade, medical retirement, and Combat-Related Special Compensation cases for veterans who are survivors of military sexual trauma (MST), i.e., sexual assault and sexual harassment in the military. Statistics from the Department of Veterans Affairs (“VA”) show that MST is reported by approximately 1 in 4 women, and 1 in 100 men who receive VA health care. Many MST survivors subsequently experience PTSD or other mental health conditions resulting from the MST. When survivors report MST, they may be met with retaliation and hostility from their command. This could lead to an unfavorable discharge characterization or denial of medical retirement.

The attorney will review veterans’ medical and personnel files to determine merit for pro bono placement, write screening memos for meritorious cases, train pro bono lawyers, mentor cases placed with pro bono law firms, and conduct outreach to veterans at clinics.

Qualifications and Experience: J.D.; excellent research and writing skills; experience with veterans law and/or military service appreciated.

Opening/Closing Date: Available immediately; closes when filled. NVLSP has a generous benefits program, with health and pension benefits provided.

Applications: A cover letter, resume, writing sample, and a list of three references should be e-mailed to Rochelle Bobroff, Director of Pro Bono, at rochelle@nvlsp.org.
