Veterans Legal Corps Fellow

The Organization 

The Veteran Advocacy Project provides free civil legal services to low-income veterans, with a focus on those living with Post Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury, and substance use issues. We are partnered with VA hospitals, health clinics, and local veterans’ groups to reach servicemembers where they are. While our attorneys tackle the legal challenges, our advocates ensure that our clients are connected to appropriate social services. With a dedicated team, the project allows veterans to achieve the stability needed to regain their health and rebuild their lives.

The Position

The Veteran Advocacy Project seeks a law graduate to serve as an AmeriCorps Fellow for the 2016-2017 program year. This fellowship is available due to a partnership between Equal Justice Works and AmeriCorps through which legal assistance is provided to veterans and military families across the nation. This program is available to all, without regard to race, color, national origin, disability, age, sex, political affiliation, or religion.
