Pacific Legal Foundation—the nation’s first and most successful public interest law firm dedicated to vindicating individual liberty—seeks an energetic and experienced legal policy and legislative professional to build and lead a new component to expand PLF’s positive influence on Capitol Hill, the federal executive branch, and in state capitals.
The Government Affairs Director will oversee PLF’s legal policy component, a key part of the organization’s strategic plan. This position provides an opportunity to play an important role that will increase PLF’s national prominence and expand its success outside the courts in advancing liberty. The Government Affairs Director will coordinate with the legal, research, and communications teams to develop and execute strategies directed at engaging Congress, federal agencies, and state governments. Because this is a new position, the Government Affairs Director’s first duty will be to collaborate with others and develop a strategic plan that will guide the foundation’s efforts to achieve increasing success in the political branches over time. The Government Affairs Director will also need a high degree of entrepreneurship and initiative to launch and execute new projects pursuant to the plan.
The role will be based in PLF’s Arlington, VA office.
