MSLF is a nonprofit, public interest legal foundation dedicated to individual liberty, the right to own and use property, limited and ethical government, and the free enterprise system.

As such, our attorneys are a critical part of MSLF’s team and should possess the passion, commitment, and strategic vision needed to drive our mission to new heights.
Responsibilities and duties include:
Staff attorneys must have practical experience developing a case from the ground up, and know how to think through the strategy of bringing a case to trial. Each Staff Attorney is responsible for his own caseload and litigates those cases from filing the complaint to argument or trial. Responsibilities include developing and managing cases, extensive factual and legal research and writing, discovery, motion practice, and appellate advocacy.
Staff Attorneys work under the supervision of the Managing Attorney and the Chief Legal Officer.
