The U.S. EPA Region 5 Office of Regional Counsel seeks applications for an Attorney-Advisor.

Three positions are currently available. This is an entry-level permanent staff attorney position in the Chicago, Illinois office. The Attorney-Advisor is expected to start work in the fall of 2019. The deadline to apply is Friday, September 20, 2019.

The Office of Regional Counsel is seeking applicants with excellent analytical and writing abilities, a strong commitment to public service, effective "people" skills, and an ability to take on significant responsibility. This position provides an opportunity for entry-level attorneys to practice law in a leading governmental environmental organization, and to receive extensive training in and exposure to environmental law and policy work in the public sector.

Region 5 offers new attorneys significant responsibility, the opportunity to handle a varied caseload that includes enforcement and counseling work, and extensive training and mentoring from dedicated colleagues with recognized expertise. The Region offers a diverse and supportive work environment.

Region 5 encompasses the states of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin. The Office of Regional Counsel (ORC) represents Region 5 in federal administrative, judicial and criminal environmental matters against regulated entities as well as in defensive cases within the jurisdiction of Region 5.

The primary statutes enforced by the EPA are the Clean Air Act; Clean Water Act; Safe Drinking Water Act; Toxic Substances Control Act; Resource Conservation and Recovery Act; Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (Superfund); and the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act. Because ORC is organized as a multi-media office, an attorney's caseload may span the range of statutes EPA enforces and implements and is not limited to one statute, state, or industry. In addition, ORC attorneys provide legal advice to the Regional Administrator and other senior managers of Region 5 on all matters relating to their official responsibilities

Qualified applicants must be J.D. graduates of an accredited law school and be members of a state bar, or 2019 J.D. graduates with bar membership pending. The ideal candidate will be a recently graduated attorney with excellent written and oral communication skills, a strong interest in public service and the mission of EPA.

Region 5 has a strong preference that the applicant be able to start in the fall of 2019. Applicants must be a U.S. citizen to qualify for this position. If you qualify for veterans' preference and want the Agency to consider that preference as a positive factor in reviewing your application, you must include in your application appropriate documentation such as DD214 (copy4), your VA letter, or Standard Form-15 (disabled veteran).

All supporting documents must be submitted electronically via email to R5Attorney- Advisor@epa.gov ,
