Employment Type Full-Time

The Legal Aid Society of the District of Columbia seeks an energetic and knowledgeable Operations Associate to support Legal Aid’s very active civil legal services practice. This position will report directly to the Director of IT & Facilities while working closely with other Operations Staff.

Legal Aid was formed in 1932 to “provide legal aid and counsel to indigent persons in civil law matters and to encourage measures by which the law may better protect and serve their needs.” Legal Aid is the oldest and largest general civil legal services program in the District of Columbia. The largest part of our work is composed of direct representation in housing, family/domestic violence, public benefits, and consumer law, although we also work on immigration matters and help individuals with the collateral consequences of their involvement with the criminal justice system. From the experiences of our clients, we identify opportunities for law reform, public policy advocacy, and systemic reform litigation.
