The Legislative Attorney prepares objective, non-partisan analytical studies and descriptive and background memoranda and reports on legal issues of national significance; provides personal consultation and assistance to congressional committees, Members, and staff on legal issues throughout the legislative process; and participates in or leads team research projects and seminars. The incumbent is expected to develop over time the skills necessary to provide legal analysis and consultation to congressional committees, Members, and staff at increasingly sophisticated levels.

Applicants should have experience conducting sophisticated analysis of international trade and economics, knowledge of the U.S. legislative branch and its operations, and the ability to work as part of a collaborative team. The work can require rapid response to emerging policy issues during active legislative processes. The ideal candidate will have a solid background in international trade and economic policy with some experience analyzing foreign and regional economies, including emerging economies. Strong research, analytical, writing, and presentation skills are essential, and applicants with an advanced degree in economics or finance are strongly encouraged to apply.

The analyst will prepare authoritative, objective, and non-partisan analytical studies and descriptive and background reports and other products that analyze the international trade and finance policy of the United States and global economic developments; provide personal consultation and assistance to congressional committees, Members, and staff on such policies throughout the legislative process; and participate in or lead team research projects and seminars.

As a legislative branch agency within the Library of Congress, CRS has been a valued and respected resource on Capitol Hill for over a century.  CRS is well known for analysis that is accurate, authoritative, confidential, objective and nonpartisan.
