Published 9 days ago

Legal Services of New Jersey, with offices in Edison and Newark is a non-profit that provides free civil legal assistance to low income New Jerseyans. We have an immediate opening for an attorney to provide and oversee representation to unaccompanied minors and other immigrant youth. We are looking to hire, depending on experience, either a staff attorney or a supervising attorney. The strongest candidates will have related experience in immigration law, family law, and prior work with children. Fluency in Spanish is an extremely important additional capacity. While currently remote, this position will eventually require some travel to the immigration courts in Elizabeth and Newark, New Jersey, and county superior courts throughout the state. LSNJ is based in Edison, but also maintains a small suite of offices in Newark within walking distance from Newark Penn Station.
