Legislative Assistant 180-18
The Office of Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) is seeking a bright, creative, and self-motivated legislative assistant with a background in law to join our Washington, DC-based policy team. The legislative assistant will draft legislation, analyze bills, and meet with constituents concerning policy matters, among other duties. The person will be expected to handle a diverse portfolio of policy issues. The successful applicant will be a libertarian or classical liberal in the tradition of F.A. Hayek, Henry Hazlitt, and Frédéric Bastiat. The applicant must demonstrate a strong commitment to individual liberty, economic freedom, the Rule of Law, and the Constitution. The person also must be an excellent writer and clear thinker willing to take on the most serious impediments to a freer, more prosperous America. An individual who prefers staid and steady work or who avoids challenges (and the occasional failure) may be more comfortable elsewhere. Applicants must have a JD or equivalent. Two years of relevant policy experience is preferred, although Hill experience is not required. To apply, please send a résumé, cover letter, and two writing samples to email@example.com. Please include "legislative assistant applicant" in the subject line. No walk-in applicants or phone interviews.
