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.

We are currently accepting applications for fall internships. Please see our Intern page for more information.

Legal Aid is accepting applications from candidates who would like to be sponsored for a Skadden or Equal Justice Works fellowship in our Consumer Law Unit. Legal Aid is also for a Housing Law Attorney. Please go to our Employment page for more information.
