The incumbent also directs research and analysis on a wide variety of court decisions, legislation, regulations, and policies, and provides legal support for the execution of a wide array of international and interagency projects. Duties include providing oral and written advice to the General Counsel, CISA leadership and field personnel, and other senior DHS executives. The incumbent is also responsible for coordinating with other attorneys across OGC to provide comprehensive legal support that meets the Department's and CISA's interests. Strong writing skills and communications skills are critical.

The incumbent supports the Director in leading CISA, including in developing comprehensive and long-range planning process and staffing plans, in recruiting and selecting professionals to join the office, and ensuring the professional development of the office's attorneys.
