Assistant Director, Practice Groups

DESCRIPTION: The Federalist Society seeks an Assistant Director to aid the efforts of its 15 Practice Groups.

  • Organize a variety of other programming, including over 130 “Teleforum” conference call briefings and podcasts on breaking legal issues and Supreme Court litigation each year, as well as in-person events at the National Press Club, on Capitol Hill, and at major law firms in Washington, D.C.
  • Obtain CLE accreditation for Federalist Society programs, collect and organize records of attendance, and report attendance to state bars
  • Communicate with Federalist Society members through email software and basic web-management
