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.

A CALL TO ACTION: Absent D.C. Council action, 13,000 children in the District of Columbia will lose critical benefits. Please urge the Council to protect vulnerable D.C. families and children. TANF is a lifeline.

Legal Aid is currently hiring for a Supervising Attorney and a Staff Attorney for our Consumer Unit, a Legal Assistant/Paralegal to support our Appellate, Consumer and Public Benefits Units, and a Legal Assistant/Paralegal to support our Family/DV Unit. Please go to our Employment page for more information.
