The Department of Justice is the principal federal agency charged with enforcing federally-protected civil and constitutional rights. The Division's mission comprises two prongs: (1) vigorous enforcement of the criminal laws prohibiting civil rights abuses, including "color of law" violations by state officers, trafficking in humans, conspiracy to violate federally protected rights, and criminal interference with housing rights; and (2) defending individuals' federal civil rights through a panoply of means including civil litigation, consent orders, settlements, technical assistance, public outreach, and education programs.
The U.S. Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division is seeking experienced attorneys for the position of Trial Attorney for Olmstead enforcement in the Disability Rights Section located in Washington, D.C. The Division is primarily responsible for enforcing federal statutes, regulations and executive orders that prohibit, among other things, unlawful discrimination in voting, education, employment, housing, police services, public accommodations and facilities, and federally funded and conducted programs. The Section enforces statutes that prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability. These statutes include the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the ADA Amendments Act, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act, and portions of the Help America Vote Act, the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act, and Executive Order 12250. The Section has enforcement, certification, regulatory, coordination, and technical assistance responsibilities.
