Job summary

ClientEarth is looking to recruit a Lawyer, Marine Habitats to work on marine conservation issues.

Location: Brussels


This exciting opportunity is for a mid-level to experienced lawyer with litigation experience to become part of the team working on marine conservation issues, and contributing to ClientEarth’s efforts to use the law to achieve meaningful protection of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) and foster the recovery of marine biodiversity in Europe.

There will be a strong emphasis on working with partner NGOs and making strategic legal interventions (e.g. complaints and court cases) to protect marine wildlife and habitats at national and EU levels. The initial focus is anticipated to be building legally robust arguments to prevent damaging fishing activities in MPAs in French, Portuguese and Irish waters (particularly inshore MPAs) and in the North Sea (offshore MPAs). The Lawyer will also analyse complex legal questions and policy scenarios and produce high-quality outputs, including speaking on behalf of ClientEarth to key decision makers.

The role is based in ClientEarth’s Brussels office and ClientEarth are keen for somebody to start in early March 2019.
