San Francisco, CA, United States

Employment Type


Posted on
Sep 02,2019


The Chief Counsel serves as attorney to the California Coastal Commission (Commission) and the Executive Director, and manages and directs the work of the Legal Division, which is comprised of attorneys, legal analysts, a legal assistant and a legal secretary.  The Chief Counsel advises the Commission and Executive Director and all senior management on all legal issues arising from the Commission’s Implementation of the California Coastal Act and California’s Coastal Management Program.  The Chief Counsel is the principal contact for City Attorneys and County Counsels for the 76 local governments in the coastal zone, to the legal offices of the Governor, California Natural Resources Agency, and of other public agencies, special districts, commercial ports and the University of California; and is the primary liaison with the California Attorney General’s Office.  The Attorney General’s Office handles litigation for the Commission.


Legal issues raised by implementation of California’s Coastal Management Program are complex, diverse, intellectually challenging and often on the cutting edge of land use law in the state and nation.  Primary areas of law involve state land and water use law (e.g. Coastal Act, Subdivision Map Act, CEQA); federal law affecting coastal and ocean resources; federal and state constitutional law concerning “takings”; enforcement; and state administrative law, including conflict of interest, ethics, rulemaking and state civil service rules.  The Chief Counsel travels to each monthly Commission meeting (3 to 5 days) to advise the Commission and Commission staff on legal matters arising during the meeting.

What I liked about the service is that it had such a comprehensive collection of jobs! I was using a number of sites previously and this took up so much time, but in joining EmploymentCrossing, I was able to stop going from site to site and was able to find everything I needed on EmploymentCrossing.
