Eastside Legal Assistance Program (ELAP) Family Law Fellowship Opportunity
The Family Law Fellowship is accepting applications for newly licensed attorneys pursuing a career in family law. The Fellowship utilizes attorney volunteer hours to serve DV survivors who are low income and face a variety of legal issues in the family law arena (protection orders, dissolutions, parenting issues, and child support). The Fellows will receive support by way of computer access, desks, phones, mentorship and training in Family Law, Domestic Violence, motions practice and pre-trial/trial preparation. ELAP will also provide law office management training to assist the attorneys in establishing their own offices. The Fellows will be obligated to volunteer for one year or until they have reached 1040 service hours. The Fellows will be covered by ELAP’s malpractice insurance for work done on ELAP cases for the duration of the Fellowship. This is a one-year fellowship.
