The LEGAL AID SOCIETY OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA is D.C.'s oldest and largest general civil legal services organization. Since 1932, Legal Aid lawyers have been MAKING JUSTICE REAL — in individual and systemic ways — for persons living in poverty in the District.

Legal Aid is accepting applications for a Staff Attorney in our Family Unit, a Staff Attorney in our Public Benefits Unit, and for a candidate to sponsor for Fall 2016 Skadden and Equal Justice Works Fellowships. Please go to our Employment page for more information.
