The AmeriCorps JD program has some additional slots available to start this month! Through AmeriCorps JD, law students focusing on any area of civil public interest law can earn a $1,175 Segal AmeriCorps Education Award. AmeriCorps JD is also an exciting way to get connected to the various resources that Equal Justice Works offers to public interest law students.
We are looking for students who:
- Can begin service in July 2014; and
- Can complete 300 hours of service in a 12 month period (by July 2015).
Service includes training and substantive work, and can include research or additional projects for an internship even though a student may not physically be in the office past the summer months.
Time is of the essence — students must start this month! If you are currently at or planning an internship at an organization (including legal aid, public defender, nonprofit organizations, or local, county or state government agencies), you are encouraged to apply to AmeriCorps JD today.
