ADMINISTRATIVE LAW AND REGULATORY LITIGATION DIVISION

The Law Department is now accepting applications for the position of Assistant Corporation Counsel in the Administrative Law & Regulatory Litigation Division. The Administrative Law & Regulatory Litigation Division handles State and Federal court proceedings brought by and against the numerous City agencies that are responsible for administering and enforcing laws and regulations in the areas of public health, land use, licensing, use of the streets, transportation, public housing, building and fire codes, among others, so as to enhance the quality of life of its citizens and visitors. Some of these actions include challenges to the provisions of law themselves, while most dispute the application of a particular legal requirement in a specific context. Many cases raise constitutional claims, including First and Second Amendment challenges, challenges to various City regulations and orders on Due Process and Equal Protection grounds, among others; and many cases involve challenges that the regulations or policies at issue violate state or federal statutory provisions. The Division handles cases for over 20 different City agencies and the five City-run Pension Funds. In addition to our varied defensive practice, the Division brings some civil actions to obtain compliance with regulatory requirements, and prosecutes code violators in New York Criminal Court to punish their non-compliance and ultimately bring about code compliance. The hired candidate will be responsible for independently handling a caseload comprised of these sorts of actions from beginning to end including preparing pleadings and affidavits after reviewing agency records and consulting with agency representatives, researching and writing memoranda of law, conducing necessary discovery, making court appearances to argue motions, and taking cases if appropriate to trial, as well as prosecuting violations and misdemeanors in Criminal Court.

All applicants must be admitted in the State of New York with at least two years of experience following graduation from an ABA approved law school. Applicants must have superior organizational, time-management, research and writing and oral advocacy skills.

Applicants should have a demonstrated record of independently litigating matters in the courts. Prior regulatory or municipal law experience is preferred, but not required.

Assistants are given the opportunity to train for and join the Divisions Special Victims Unit which handles complex litigation around sex offenses and other related cases and whose members are nationally trained and certified in forensic interviewing and other specialized skills; and/or the Divisions Major Case Unit which handles advanced litigation dealing with the most serious charges and challenging needs and whose members work closely with federal, state and local law enforcement to address safety concerns within communities; and the opportunity to qualify to be cross-designated special ADAs in most of the NYC District Attorney offices where they work alongside ADAs on Adolescent Offender cases being removed to Family Court under the historic Raise the Age legislation.

The Assistant is supported by legal supervisors and legal support professionals. Case assignment is centered around a vertical prosecution model. The Family Court Division is ideal for attorneys with a passion for juvenile justice, and helping communities thrive. Suitable members of the Division possess the ability to investigate cases, analyze and then advocate for appropriate outcomes on a case-by-case basis, and to expertly conduct hearings and trials in a fast-paced environment with the ultimate goals of rehabilitation of the youth and the enhancement of the safety of the community.
