The Initiative for Strategic Litigation in Africa (“ISLA”) is based on the belief that strategic litigation is an immensely strong tool for social change because it helps to reframe the understanding of entitlements before the law and it challenges the legal discourse on women’s rights and sexual rights. ISLA seeks to use the rule of law and African domestic and regional courts to advance women’s human rights and sexual rights.
ISLA has partnered with NGO Recruit to assist in the search for a Lawyer.
ISLA seeks to appoint a lawyer or senior lawyer who will provide leadership in the Sexual Rights thematic area, provide thought leadership on litigation related work and contribute to ISLA’s strategy implementation. This incumbent will work closely with other thematic lead lawyers, network managers and ISLA’s partners.
Are you committed to contributing to the development of feminist jurisprudence? Have you the ability to take an strategic and dynamic approach to the use of law as a tool for the promotion of human rights? This role might be perfect for you!
