Junior Associate Position

Kanji & Katzen, P.L.L.C., a law firm dedicated exclusively to defending the sovereign rights and interests of Indian nations and tribes, is accepting applications for a junior associate position to begin in summer/fall 2024. While our flagship offices are located in Seattle, Washington, and Ann Arbor, Michigan, there is no geographic restriction on the position, and we will consider any remote work arrangement that helps to advance advocacy for our tribal clients nationwide. Kanji & Katzen represents tribes on a wide variety of issues, with key areas of expertise including tribal sovereignty and governance, treaty fishing and hunting rights, environmental protection, taxation, economic development, gaming, land claims, reservation boundaries, and tribal jurisdiction. The firm expects its attorneys to devote their careers to advocacy on behalf of tribes.

Applicants should possess a stellar academic and professional record and a commitment to tribal representation and tribal communities. We prefer that applicants have 1-4 years of practice or judicial clerkship experience after law school, but such experience is not an absolute requirement for highly qualified applicants. Prior experience or demonstrated interest in the field of federal Indian law is strongly preferred.

The firm offers competitive salaries and benefits and an opportunity to hone advocacy skills in a wide variety of interesting settings. To apply, please send by email a cover letter, resume, law school transcript, undergraduate transcript, and writing sample addressed to Terri Walrod, twalrod@kanjikatzen.com, no later than February 15, 2024.
