NYC Law Department Job Posting – ACC APPEALS

The Law Department is now seeking applicants for the position of Assistant Corporation Counsel in the Appeals Division. The Law Department represents the City of New York, its agencies, officers, and employees in all defensive and affirmative litigation. The Appeals Division, comprised of approximately 35 attorneys, is responsible for handling resulting appeals in both state and federal court. The Appeals Division provides a unique opportunity for attorneys to engage in high caliber appellate practice while representing the public interest. Each attorney in the Appeals Division has primary responsibility for a significant docket of appeals and typically briefs and argues over 20 appeals a year, involving a diverse range of constitutional, statutory, and common law issues. Attorneys work independently, but also must be able to work collaboratively with trial attorneys, client agencies, and executive staff.

The City is involved in an immense range of legal issues, affecting over 8.4 million city residents, and raising important legal and public policy questions, often in areas of new or evolving law. To best represent the Citys interests on the appellate level, we are looking for exceptional candidates with a strong commitment to public service who are eager and capable of tackling this challenging work. Candidates must have excellent legal writing, research, and analysis skills. Applicants must also have graduated from an ABA accredited law school and be a member in good standing of the NYS bar, or be in the process of being admitted.

Preferred Skills: Prior appellate experience, from practice or through an appellate clerkship, is preferred but not required.

Additional Information: Please feel free to contact Cecelia Chang (chchang@law.nyc.gov) if you have any questions about the Appeals Division. She is happy to discuss the work of the Division and can also put potential candidates in touch with other attorneys here who can share their experiences in the Division. If you have difficulties with the application system, please contact NYC Jobs directly through this link – http://www.nyc.gov/html/static/pages/jobs/contact.shtml.
