Job Announcement - MFLC Attorney Fellow

Do you want to have an impact on the lives of Indiana's most vulnerable residents? Looking for a fellowship that could enhance your experience in the legal field? Look no further!

Indiana Legal Services (ILS) is seeking to hire an attorney fellow to work within the Migrant Farmworker's Law Center (MFLC). The MFLC will host a fellow over two years as part of the Equal Justice Works Crime Victims Justice Corps. The fellowship should begin on or about June 1, 2018 and end May/June 2020. The MFLCC will seek to extend this position beyond the grant term by applying for additional funding.

The Equal Justice Works Crime Victims Justice Corps is a legal fellowship program designed to increase capacity and access to civil legal help for crime victims. A cohort of approximately sixty fellows are placed at nonprofit organizations across the country to provide direct representation to victims of crimes, including human trafficking, fraud/identity theft, campus sexual assault, and hate crime, and immigrant victims of crime with meritorious claims for immigration relief, and outreach and education to community partners. All fellows will incorporate crime victims’ rights enforcement into their practice and will receive training from the National Crime Victim Law Institute and other training and technical assistance providers.
