Description

PROGRAM BACKGROUND
Community Engineering Corps (CECorps) is a domestic program formed through an alliance between the American Society of Civil Engineers, the American Water Works Association, and Engineers Without Borders USA. CECorps brings underserved communities and volunteer engineer leaders together to advance local infrastructure solutions in the United States.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
CECorps is seeking Legal Review volunteers who are responsible for the review of a domestic project’s Engineering Services Agreement (ESA). They will examine the overall breadth and scope of the projects to minimize and mitigate legal risk, helping ensure that the projects protect and preserve the public health, safety, and welfare. The ESA is reviewed before it is finalized to ensure it has a reasonable scope of work, list of deliverables, schedule, and that the legal terms are appropriate.

REQUIREMENTS
- must be licensed member of the bar in the United States
- at least four years’ experience related to construction law

EXPECTATIONS
- committed to the mission of CECorps
- responsive to review assignments

TIME COMMITMENT
The number of hours per month is dependent on the number of projects actively working on their Engineering Services Agreements, but should be less than 10 hours per month on average. Legal Review volunteers are part of a rotating roster, meaning that they will not be called on for every review unless they hold the particular expertise for that state and/or project type.

FINANCIAL COMMITMENT
Other than the financial commitment required to be a member of one of the three alliance organizations, no financial commitment is required.

 

To Apply

Interested volunteers must apply by submitting a resume to CECsubmittals@ewb-usa.org.

Please address any experience you have had with community development projects and advising nonprofit organizations. You may also list any other volunteer experience that would contribute to your effectiveness.
