The role includes overseeing legal work, guiding education and public policy efforts, and helping the executive director in providing leadership and strategic guidance to the organization. The legal director may also maintain a limited docket of cases and issues as either a lead or secondary attorney.

The legal director role requires someone with strong legal and management skills, and a commitment to social equity and racial justice, along with an eagerness to understand how these issues play out in communities impacted by pollution, industrialization, and the climate crisis.

Working for Trustees

Hear more about working for Trustees from Mackenzie Pope, who did digital communications work in 2022. Here, she talks about the Trustees work environment and the way it helped her feel welcome, respected, supported and part of a team.  And, of course, she’s all in for the office dogs and root beer floats!

Trustees offers competitive pay and benefits, opportunities for professional growth and skill development, and a healthy and respectful work environment. We work from a small office in midtown Anchorage, with flexibility around remote work. We collaborate in coalitions with a broad array of partners and communities from across the state and continent to protect Alaska’s landscapes and communities for generations to come.
