Central West Justice Center (CWJC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Community Legal Aid (CLA), is pleased to seek an immigration law fellow to work in its Worcester, Mass. office for a period of one year, with the possibility of renewal. The fellow will join an experienced, creative immigration law team housed in a vibrant, supportive legal aid program serving central and western Massachusetts.

The Bart Gordon Fellowship is funded by the Massachusetts Legal Assistance Corporation and is intended to provide legal services to clients from low-income communities who may have difficulty accessing the justice system due to linguistic, racial, cultural or disability barriers.  CLA has designed the Fellowship to focus on removal defense and humanitarian-based immigration relief, including cases involving Violence Against Women Act self-petitions, U visas, T visas, and asylum requests. In addition to assisting individual clients, the Fellow will provide know-your-rights trainings to the community.

QUALIFICATIONS:  Admission to Mass. Bar, or eligible to sit for next Mass. Bar examination, or entitled to practice under SJC Rule 3:04 as a member of another state's Bar. Fluency or high proficiency in Spanish is required. Demonstrated experience working with diverse communities strongly preferred, as is demonstrated interest in immigration law (preferably through prior employment, internships or clinical experiences). Strong interpersonal skills and an ability to work in a collaborative setting are important. The Bart Gordon Fellow must be a 2016, 2017, or 2018 law school graduate. The Fellowship will start in the summer of 2018.

Please submit cover letter and resumes to the link that is provided.  If  you are unable to post electronically, please send cover letter and resume to Eileen Messier, Human Resources Manager, Community Legal Aid, 405 Main Street, Worcester, Massachusetts 01608. EOE.
