Altshuler Berzon LLP is inviting applications for a Law Fellow who will begin in the fall of 2022. The firm welcomes applicants who are recent law school graduates interested in a one-year position that will involve them in the diverse practice of the firm. Fellows can expect to work on a variety of cases representing labor unions, workers, environmental groups, consumers, and governmental entities.
Fellows will work closely with other lawyers at the firm to provide representation and advice to our clients. They will participate as full members of our legal teams and will have significant responsibilities for our cases, as well as opportunities for professional development. This Law Fellow Program is in addition to the firm’s Environmental Fellowship that is run jointly with NRDC.
About Us. Altshuler Berzon LLP is a San Francisco law firm dedicated to providing the highest quality representation in the service of economic justice and the public interest. The firm has earned a nationwide reputation for excellence. Our clients and colleagues in other firms often turn to us to handle groundbreaking litigation involving issues of first impression, particularly cases raising important constitutional and public policy issues. We specialize in labor and employment, constitutional, environmental, civil rights, class action, campaign and election, and impact litigation, at both the trial and appellate levels. We represent clients before state and federal courts, administrative agencies, and arbitrators. We also provide advice and counseling, legislative drafting, representation in collective bargaining and negotiation, and other forms of legal assistance.
Qualifications. Applications will be accepted from 3Ls and recent graduates. Candidates should possess outstanding writing ability, analytical skills, and academic records and should have a demonstrated interest in public interest law practice.

Applications. Applicants should email a cover letter, resume, two writing samples, law school transcript, and list of references to Michael Rubin at email@example.com. The firm will consider applications on a rolling basis.
