Through the new justice AmeriCorps program, Equal Justice Works, Catholic Legal Immigration Network Inc., Kids In Need of Defense, and the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants are partnering to put 55 full-time legal professionals – lawyers and paralegals – in the field by December 1.
Equal Justice Works Member Law Schools can help spread the word and support this great opportunity:
- Share the news with your recent graduates! Interested individuals should apply directly to their organization of interest and sign up to receive updates.
- Invite our host organizations to post positions to your career services sites.
- Law schools can sign on to commit to provide $5,000 per lawyer if one or more of your graduates is selected to the program. Your commitment helps us supplement AmeriCorps’ $19,800 compensation package with our commitment to reach approximately $41,000 per lawyer. Join the growing list of schools pledging support.
