Founded on the fundamental principle that every person should always be treated with dignity and respect, ICLC fights for justice for low-income tenants, working-poor families, people who are disabled or homeless, people living with HIV/AIDS, and homeless veterans. Inner City Law Center is doubling in size and we are looking for extraordinary people to help end homelessness in Los Angeles. Over the next six months, we will add 40 talented lawyers, paralegals, and other staff to our team so that we can serve far more people.

The Project Coordinator will work directly with the Project’s Directing Attorney and assist him with other specific duties to be developed as the needs of the team expand. As this is a new project, the Project Coordinator will be expected and encouraged to help the team develop and improve its systems for carrying out its work in a more efficient and effective manner.
