Due November 30: Advocates for Community Alternatives, Legal Coordinator
Application Due: November 30, 2017
Advocates for Alternatives (ACA) is seeking a lawyer with international human rights expertise to manage our legal docket and provide support to our legal partners throughout West Africa. The intended start date for this position is January 2018.
Established in April 2016, ACA helps West African communities that are threatened by the destructive impacts of extractives-led development to take control of their own futures. We do this by working with communities to design their own sustainable development plans and advocate to achieve those plans. And we build networks of lawyers and other experts to help the communities’ plans come to fruition. Based in Accra, Ghana, ACA has projects in communities in Ghana’s Brong Ahafo and Volta Regions, in addition to its collaboration and support programs for the Public Interest Lawyering Initiative for West Africa (PILIWA), a network of lawyers and legal advocates in eight West African countries.

Posner, a former judge on the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, hopes to raise money for the group through foundations and other charitable sources, WBEZ reports.
Posner sees some merit in pro se litigating. He told the Chicago Tribune he would like to see both sides in a civil case go to trial without lawyers, like on Judge Judy. As a model, he pointed to nonadversarial legal systems that are led by judges in some European countries.”
