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 currently hiring for a Supervising Attorney for our Housing Unit. In addition to this opening, Legal Aid is accepting applications for an Equal Justice Works and/or Skadden Fellowship in our Family Unit. Please go to our Employment page for more information.
