Careers

The Community Health Law Project is always looking for law students who are interested in summer employment as a legal intern in one of our offices. In our regional offices, the intern would assist staff attorneys in providing legal representation to clients on Social Security, public entitlements, housing, family, and other civil matters. In our administration office (South Orange), the intern would research and write on civil rights and other disability-related issues.

Every year we also hire a law student or graduate student to work as a public policy intern. The intern researches and writes on matters of public policy that affect our clients, e.g., welfare regulations, proposed changes in the Medicaid program, psychiatric institution lien law reform.

We are always interested in receiving resumes of people interested in attorney or advocate positions. Attorneys provide direct legal representation of low-income clients with disabilities in such civil matters as Social Security, Welfare, landlord-tenant disputes, debt collection, family law, and barrier-free accessibility. Advocates provide representation of clients before administrative tribunals (for example, at Social Security hearings). When an opening arises, it will be posted here.
