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.
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.
