2014-2015 Equal Justice Works AmeriCorps Legal Fellowships
Our AmeriCorps Legal Fellowship positions are filling up! This year, we have positions available for our Veterans Legal Corps, where Fellows will provide legal services in a variety of issue areas to veterans and military families, and Employment Opportunities Legal Corps, where Fellows will work to reduce legal barriers to employment for disadvantaged populations. Most fellows will have an option to renew for a second year, contingent upon continued funding.
Fellows begin their one-year term between August 1 and September 30. Host sites began posting positions in late June, and most available slots will be filled this month.
Available positions are posted on PSJD, host site employment pages, and a master list is available on our website:
• Veterans Legal Corps Positions
• Employment Opportunity Legal Corps Positions
Applications are submitted directly to the host site, so please contact sites directly regarding availability and to apply. To be eligible for an AmeriCorps Legal Fellowship, applicants must be a graduate of an Equal Justice Works member law school; be a U.S. citizen, U.S. national, or lawful permanent resident; and complete a required criminal background check, including FBI finger print check. Specific host sites may set additional requirements.
