The Habeas Corpus Resource Center (HCRC), located in San Francisco, is accepting applications for Litigation Support Assistants (Investigator Track), Investigators, and Senior Investigators.  With varying levels of supervision and independence, employees in each of these positions assist in planning, organizing, and conducting investigations related to the representation of HCRC clients on death row in legal proceedings (called habeas corpus proceedings) challenging their convictions and death sentences. Typical duties include collecting and analyzing factual materials, documents, and records about our clients’ lives; identifying, locating, and interviewing a broad range of people who knew our clients or were involved in their cases; conferring with attorneys about potential legal issues; and drafting, reviewing, and editing reports, summaries and witness statements.  The HCRC seeks motivated applicants with intellectual curiosity and excellent computer, writing, organizational and interpersonal skills. Candidates must be trustworthy with confidential information, have a track record of exercising good judgment, be able to establish rapport with a wide range of people, be available to travel extensively, both in state and out of state, and show a commitment to the defense of or advocacy for indigent defendants. We are particularly interested in candidates who have knowledge of or experience working with mental health issues, developing mitigation, and in working with clients and family members.

The HCRC was established as a judicial branch entity to provide direct legal representation to clients on death row in post-conviction proceedings in state and federal courts. In addition, the HCRC acts as a resource center to outside counsel for the defense of death row defendants. Positions will be filled depending upon the needs of the HCRC and the qualifications of those in the applicant pool.  Positions that may be filled in this recruitment include:

  • LITIGATION SUPPORT ASSISTANT I/II – INVESTIGATOR TRACK
  • HABEAS CORPUS INVESTIGATOR I/II
  • SENIOR HABEAS CORPUS INVESTIGATOR
