OneJustice is a nonprofit legal organization that brings life-changing legal help to those in need by transforming the civil legal aid system. We have three core program areas: (1) Pro Bono Justice, which expands legal services for Californians in need by developing and staffing innovative and effective pro bono projects with law schools, law firms, and businesses around the state; (2) Healthy Nonprofits, which ensures legal services nonprofits have the business and management skills needed to survive and thrive, and (3) Californians for Legal Aid, which advocates for California legal services nonprofits on federal policy and funding issues. More information about OneJustice is available at www.OneJustice.org.
OneJustice is looking for a Staff Attorney to join our team of legal aid innovators. The Staff Attorney will work on a portfolio of projects, including stewarding one of OneJustice's pioneering projects, IMPACT LA, which leverages the private bar to serve survivors of domestic violence. As part of the Pro Bono Justice team, the Staff Attorney will also work on helping to build and support pro bono networks throughout California, including providing consulting and logistical support to legal aid organizations around the state. This is a perfect role for an attorney looking to make a significant impact in legal services for low-income Californians and play an influential role in a highly productive organization. Some travel within California may be required, including to rural or isolated areas for meetings and trainings and on Justice Bus trips, and to OneJustice’s San Francisco office for all-staff meetings and convenings.
Coordinate all aspects of IMPACT LA (approximately 50%)
Support OneJustice’s Pro Bono Justice team (approximately 50%)
Participate in other OneJustice activities as needed
