Community Law & Mediation is Recruiting an Environmental Justice Lawyer

This is a unique and exciting opportunity to work in the area of environmental justice.

In 2021, Community Law & Mediation (CLM) established Ireland’s first Centre for Environmental Justice. The Centre aims to empower and equip individuals, community groups and organisations to challenge environmental injustice using the law. This includes representing clients in climate litigation cases.

Community Law & Mediation (CLM) is a community based, independent law centre providing services nationwide and operating in two locations: Dublin and Limerick. It was founded in 1975 and assists almost 5,000 people annually through its services, which include free legal advice and representation; information and education; and mediation and conflict coaching. CLM also campaigns for law reform, and for the safeguarding of rights already enshrined in law. For more details on CLM’s work, please see our website.

We are recruiting an environmental justice lawyer, with an immediate start date. CLM are flexible as to whether this is a 5 day or 4 day week role. If the candidate wishes to work a 4 day week, salary, leave and benefits will be reduced on a pro rata basis.

Salary details are available on request and the direct line report is currently to the Managing Solicitor of CLM. The successful candidate will also report on the processing of legal cases to the CEO of CLM.
