As the Law Clerk, you will develop a basic understanding of the legal foundations of a renewable energy project developer and owner. You will deploy your outstanding organizational skills and attention to detail to create a more efficient method for accessing information about Scout’s legal agreements. The Law Clerk will report directly to the General Counsel.

Beyond these contract duties, additional tasks may include the following:
