KEJC is hiring a Health Law Fellow! The full job description and details are here (and .pdf), but the job is equal parts law, policy, outreach, communications, and coalition-building.
In short, we're looking for what Charles Hamilton Houston would call a "social engineer":
A social engineer was a highly skilled, perceptive, sensitive lawyer who understood the Constitution of the United States and knew how to explore its uses in the solving of "problems of . . . local communities" and in "bettering conditions of the underprivileged citizens.
KEJC works across the Commonwealth and in every possible venue (courts, the legislature, administrative agencies, and communities) to achieve justice for Kentucky's poorest and most vulnerable people. We are currently co-counseling a case with the Southern Poverty Law Center and the National Health Law Program challenging the federal government's approval of Governor Bevin's plan to impose needless and harmful work requirements and other changes on Kentuckians who get their health insurance through Medicaid.
So, if you're looking for the chance to work with good people to do important work that has a little bit of everything, including the knowledge that Kentuckians' lives depend on your good work, apply today!
Our last Health Law Fellow, Cara Stewart, left some pretty big shoes to fill.
