Job Opening: Legal Consultant to work on Sudan Projects

PEJ is looking for a legal consultant to assist in our projects on Sudan, report directly to the Sudan Country Director, and lead the implementation of one of our largest projects in the country.

Who are we?

Project Expedite Justice (PEJ) is a United States based NGO, with 501(c)(3) charitable organization status founded in 2016. PEJ’s mission is to use all available legal options to seek justice for individuals who are inadequately protected under the law, who cannot access legal resources, and who are exploited by governments, corporations, or others. For our mission, PEJ applies a novel, victim-centered approach to addressing mass atrocities. PEJ’s three-step model consists of training, mentoring, and providing independent legal consulting. We partner and train local lawyers and investigators to collect, analyze, and preserve evidence according to international legal standards. Without evidence, there can be no accountability. We further build local capabilities and forward the justice process through case-specific mentoring and strategic guidance to local legal practitioners and investigators. Finally, we partner with local NGOs, pro bono law firms, and legal clinics to represent victims of international crimes and serious human rights abuses in court or alternative judicial mechanisms. We have projects in various countries and are an inclusive team that includes people working remotely from many different places, including several countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, South America, and the USA. We are looking for a new legal consultant for our work in Sudan to lead the implementation of one of our most significant projects in the country. We are deeply committed to increasing the opportunity for lawyers from the global majority / global south to participate in international Rule of Law based non-profits. People from Sudan and other countries from the global majority are encouraged to apply for this role.
