Volunteer

Volunteers play a critical role in Inner City Law Center’s operations. We have many opportunities for those interested in dedicating their time to ICLC.

Law Student and Law Graduate Clerkships: Law Clerks gain practical experience in ICLC’s practice areas doing legal research and writing, client interviews, negotiations, public policy work, advocacy and other client work. Law Clerk positions are filled on a rolling basis. During the fall and spring semesters ICLC requires a minimum commitment of 16 hours per week, for at least 12 weeks. During the summer, ICLC requires a minimum commitment of 35 hours per week, for at least 10 weeks.

ICLC is currently looking for bright and dedicated law student externs. Click here for information and application instructions.

Undergraduate Volunteers: Undergraduate student volunteers assist ICLC’s attorneys and paralegals with current cases and projects, help serve ICLC’s clients, and help further ICLC’s efforts to end homelessness. During the fall and spring semesters ICLC requires a minimum commitment of 16 hours per week, for at least 12 weeks. During the summer semester ICLC requires a minimum commitment of 16 hours per week, for at least 10 weeks.

Paralegals: ICLC often requires the assistance of paralegals for assistance on projects ranging from client intake, Spanish/English translation, filing, editing, scanning, file review, and discovery to trial preparation.

Other Volunteers: ICLC is always looking for professionals interested in donating their services.  We periodically need various other services: e.g. translation, data entry, filing, event logistics, photography, medical (especially mental health), accounting, engineering, economics, banking, and bilingual financial advice.

Women Lawyers Association of Law Angeles Foundation Partnership: We are excited to announce a new collaboration between Inner City Law Center and the Women Lawyers Association of Law Angeles Foundation focusing on the needs of women veterans in Los Angeles. As part of the project, WLALA members will provide pro bono legal services to ICLC’s homeless veteran clients, including women veterans who are survivors of military sexual trauma, and help them obtain benefits they are owed due to their time in service. There are nearly 8,000 homeless veterans in Los Angeles alone and obtaining benefits can often mean stability and independent living for ICLC’s clients. The WLALA Foundation will also provide a grant to a law student to work at ICLC during Summer 2017 who will assist ICLC’s Homeless Veterans Project with cases and projects focused on women veterans.Click Here for More Details and to Apply.
