The Special Federal Litigation Division of the NYC Law Department defends the City and its officials in civil rights cases brought in federal court in which police, district attorney or correction officer misconduct is alleged. These cases arise from contact between citizens and law enforcement officers in three contexts: police operations, the prosecution of criminal proceedings, and the custody of arrested individuals in the City’s detention facilities. Suits are typically brought by those who believe their constitutional rights were violated in the course of an arrest and subsequent prosecution, or on account of events in City jails.

The Special Federal Litigation Division is accepting applications from admitted attorneys with at least two years of litigation experience for two different positions.

In the first position, the hired attorneys will handle a caseload from inception through resolution whether by motion practice, settlement, or trial.  Attorneys conduct initial investigations to determine if representation is appropriate, answer the complaint, appear at court conferences, engage in extensive discovery (paper and electronic), take and defend depositions, draft dispositive motions, conduct settlement negotiations, and, when appropriate, take cases to trial in federal court.

In the second position, the hired attorneys will work on a team handling cases and class action suits that arise out of the policing of recent and ongoing demonstrations in New York City.  Working collaboratively, this team will handle these significant cases from inception through resolution.

Applicants must have a minimum of two years of litigation experience following graduation from an ABA accredited law school, preferably in federal practice, municipal liability, constitutional or personal injury law. Applicants must be admitted to practice law in the State of New York and be admitted or eligible for immediate admission to the SDNY and EDNY. Applicants must have demonstrated strong legal writing and oral advocacy skills.

The deadline to apply is June 7, 2021.
