The Immigrant Legal Resource Center is a nonprofit legal support center dedicated to assisting immigrant advocates. Our work includes the education of nonprofit legal service providers and small community agencies through trainings, manuals, case consultations and policy advocacy. In addition, ILRC helps immigrant groups organize and advocate for themselves. Our primary areas of practice currently include: immigration; citizenship; immigrant civic participation; crossover issues between immigration law and criminal law, family and domestic violence law, and consumer fraud law; and asylum law. We also have projects addressing issues facing LGBT immigrants and immigrant youth.
Job Description: Law clerks will be assigned to a variety of projects and paired with a “buddy” attorney. Tasks may include, but are not limited to, research and writing for our legal publications; responding to “Attorney of the Day” calls; helping to organize and possibly speak at community meetings; and policy advocacy and lobbying on immigration law issues.
Qualifications: Applicants must possess good research and writing skills. A ten-week commitment is preferable and fluency in other languages is a plus.
Salary: Work study or summer fellowship preferred; to be discussed during interviews.
