Step Forward is a legal aid organization that focuses on survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, and human trafficking. We currently provide free immigration and family court representation to primarily (but not exclusively) Spanish-monolingual clients. We are co-located with a large nonprofit that provides comprehensive victim services and we work very closely with their staff. With a staff of 4 attorneys and 2 DOJ Accredited Representatives, we are a tight-knit group who treat each other like family, and all pitch in when needed. We will train new hires and encourage learning. This is a great opportunity for someone looking to enter the legal field and help survivors of victimization!

We are seeking a part time summer intern (unpaid) for summer 2020 to work out of our Morgan Hill office. The internship will involve both family law and immigration related work.
