Summer 2019  –  Law Student Fellow 

Legal Aid is seeking a Law Student fellow to work in our Lompoc or Santa Maria office (or who may wish to split time between the two offices) for Summer 2019.

The fellowship is generally an unpaid position, but law students may be eligible for financial support through their law school, other fellowship programs, or the Dan Bradley Fellowship through the Legal Aid Association of California.  Our commitment to work with you to secure funding should not be considered a commitment to hire. Conversely, a failure to secure funding will not disqualify you from being considered for fellowship placement. Legal Aid will also assist students offered a fellowship to pursue school externship credit in lieu of summer funding.

Law students may have the opportunity to work on legal issues related to family violence prevention (restraining orders etc.), eviction defense, or other special projects. Legal Aid will work to pair our priorities with student interests to craft a meaningful and mutually beneficial summer experience.

Interested law students should send their resume and cover letter (indicating preferred office location) to personnel@lafsbc.org with the subject line: Summer 2019 Fellowship. Spanish language proficiency (either written or verbal) is helpful but not required.
Deadline is March 31, 2019.
