UCLA

The UCLA School of Law is seeking an experienced advocate to serve as Legal and Policy Director for the Center on Reproductive Health, Law, and Policy (CHRLP or “the Center”).

CRHLP is a nationwide think tank and interdisciplinary research center created to meet the current national crisis in access to abortion while working towards long-term solutions to advance reproductive justice. The Center conducts analysis and research for legal, policy, and narrative change and serves as a trusted hub for convening and engaging academics, advocates, health care providers, policy makers, and community members to reimagine the landscape of reproductive health, law, and policy. CRHLP also trains the reproductive law and policy leaders of tomorrow and expands the capacity of the reproductive health and justice movements. The Center’s work and impact is nationwide in scope but leverages its position within California and the UC system to maximize the reach of California’s innovations and leadership status in abortion access, reproductive health, and reproductive justice.

This is an exciting time to join CRHLP. CRHLP, launched in 2022, has already established a strong interdisciplinary team of lawyers, policy advocates, researchers, scholars, communication and events specialists, and support staff. The team is still growing and actively setting its vision, goals, and priorities. The new Legal and Policy Director will play a vital role in building the vision, expanding, managing, and executing the Center’s legal and policy work. This work includes: writing amicus briefs; providing technical assistance, conducting legal analysis, and helping develop new legal theories and policies for advocates, policymakers, and health care providers; convening people for strategic and practical solutions to legal and policy problems; conducting and supporting original research and writing about legal and policy innovation, models, and best practices; and helping enhance strategic connection between researchers and advocates and maximizing impact of research on policy and litigation.
