Rising for Justice (“RFJ”) invites applications for a full-time Office Manager starting July 2020. We seek a detail-oriented professional who is a team player with a strong work ethic, the highest standards of integrity, superior administrative and organizational skills, and experience in office administration and management who can balance the competing priorities presented by a dynamic public interest law office and clinical training program with energy and enthusiasm. The Office Manager will work closely with the Executive Director, other managers, and program teams, providing support with special projects and administrative tasks. 

About Rising for Justice

Created in 1969, RFJ, formerly known as D.C. Law Students in Court, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to leveraging the collective force of attorneys and students to achieve justice for all. We provide critically needed legal services to thousands of indigent and low-income DC residents every year, to help people achieve housing security and remove barriers to employment and family instability. Our work is particularly important today in light of the devastating impact of the pandemic on our client population.

RFJ currently operates as both a public interest law office and a clinical education program that draws students from area law and social work schools in Washington, D.C. Since our founding, RFJ has trained law students to provide free, high-quality legal services to the District’s indigent and low- income community. We recently added a social work training component to our program for MSW students. In addition to providing critically needed legal services to our clients, a fundamental part of our mission is to provide law and social work students with an exceptional clinical education that meets the highest standards of instruction and practice. 

RFJ embraces equal justice and diversity as core values. We strive to maintain a workplace that is vibrant, welcoming, innovative, and collaborative. We are committed to fostering the thoughtful exchange of ideas and to ensuring that all voices are heard and respected. We seek an Office Manager/Executive Assistant who embraces our mission and values.
