The ideal candidate understands CLA's mission and has a passion for social justice and an interest in pursuing a public interest legal career. Fluency in a second language, especially Spanish, is preferred, but not required. An interest in immigration law is a plus. CLA’s Summer Legal Volunteer will get substantial hands-on experience and will conduct legal research and writing, assist with client intakes and casework, and participate in CLA's Know-Your-Rights legal presentations.

Consistent with these precautions, the ideal volunteer candidate will be available to come to CLA’s office periodically, but we will also consider remote volunteers.
