    DC LAW STUDENTS IN COURT is looking for a passionate staff attorney to join our Civil Protection Order Project (CPOP) team! CPOP is a one-of-a-kind project that offers litigation and mediation services to respondents in civil protection order (CPO) cases. CPOP’s goals are to (1) provide mediation services in CPO cases; (2) create systemic change in the way CPO cases are resolved, and (3) reduce the number of respondents who violate CPOs and commit further acts of violence. 

    About DC Law Students in Court:

    Since 1969, D.C. Law Students in Court’s (LSIC) mission has been to teach and inspire the next generation of law students while providing the highest quality legal representation to the District’s low-income residents.  LSIC was born from the ashes of the urban uprisings that consumed Washington, D.C. following the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on April 4, 1968.  These uprisings not only spotlighted the poor living conditions plaguing the District’s largely African-American communities but the need for greater access to high-quality legal representation as well.  In response, a progressive consortium of District of Columbia law schools created D.C. Law Students in Court in order to ensure equal access to justice.

    Essential Duties and Responsibilities:

    1.       Oversee volunteer attorneys working on the Project:
    (a)    Work with the Director to review referrals and intakes and select cases and volunteers.
    (b)   Supervise volunteer attorneys, law fellows, and legal intern/externs.
    (c)    Review all written attorney work product, including motions, pleadings, opening and closing statements, and direct and cross examinations.
    (d)   Supervise CPO hearings and trials at court
    (e)   Report case outcomes; evaluate and report volunteer performance.
    2.       Provide high quality direct representation in assigned CPO cases.    
    3.       Present at volunteer attorneys, law fellows, legal intern/externs, and social worker students training sessions as needed.
    4.       Assist the Director with CPOP’s community outreach efforts as needed.
    5.       Other duties as assigned.

    Minimum Qualifications:

    1.       A J.D. degree from an accredited law school.
    2.       Active DC Bar membership or ability to become an active DC member prior to the first day of employment.
    3.       Minimum of 2-3 years of relevant work experience, preferably with direct legal services experience representing respondents in domestic violence and/or family law.  Experience supervising attorneys in a legal setting and criminal defense experience are also pluses.
    4.       Excellent interpersonal skills and ability to develop good working relationships with clients, volunteers, court personnel, and other legal service providers.
    5.       Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
    6.       Excellent organizational skills and ability to manage multiple priorities at once.
    7.       Ability to work independently and/or with minimal supervision. 

    Accountability: Reports to CPOP Director.

    Hours and Salary: This is a full-time position based on a 40 hour work week. Salary is commensurate with experience.

    Benefits: We offer an excellent benefits package for this full-time position including employer-paid medical, dental, and vision insurance, generous accrued sick leave, annual leave, and personal leave and paid federal holidays.

    To Apply: LSIC has a non-discrimination policy and encourages all interested and qualified applicants to apply regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability, or other status protected by applicable law.

    The University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law- well known for its leadership in clinical legal education and for its public interest mission- is pleased to announce a fellowship opportunity in the Legislation Clinic.

    The Legislation Clinic seeks to train students in the various skills necessary for effective legislative and regulatory advocacy. It does this by offering a graded seven-credit experiential learning experience that combines client representation, community work, and the study of legislative lawyering. The Clinic’s mission is two-fold:

    1 – To provide UDC-DCSL students with the training, supervision, and field experience necessary to become effective and reflective lawyers.

    2 – To undertake projects advancing the public interest and providing quality representation to organizations in need of legislative lawyering services.

    This is accomplished by seminar instruction and field experience designed to teach UDC-DCSL law students how to excel when working with text, law, policy, and politics. The seminar contains an examination of the process of enacting legislation and regulations, the building and researching of legislative and regulatory history, the drafting of statutory and regulatory text, talking points, white papers and other policy materials, an introduction to statutory interpretation, and a variety of skills simulations and workshops related to these processes and representing clients in them such as interviewing, counseling, professional responsibility, research, and oral advocacy.

    The field experience consists of supervised policy projects for non-profit and community organizations that are working to lift vulnerable populations out of poverty with improved economic security and workplace protections as well as access to other civil rights.

    We are looking to have the Clinical Instructor begin August 16, 2018.

    The two-year LL.M. program includes coursework in clinical pedagogy, public interest law, and systems change. LL.M. candidates will work under the supervision of the law school’s experienced faculty to supervise and teach J.D. students enrolled in our clinics. By the end of the second academic year, each LL.M. candidate must produce a scholarly work of publishable quality, or a project designed to impact systems change.

    Essential Duties and Responsibilities

    1. Supervision of students’ client representation.
    2. Co-teaching a classroom seminar and case rounds.
    3. Course planning and preparation with the Director of the clinic.

    Minimum Job Requirements

    1. A law degree from an accredited U.S. law school, active, good standing with a bar association in the U.S., and eligibility to become a member of the District of Columbia Bar.
