Learn How You Can Help

Our volunteers are instrumental in ELAP’s work. We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities to match your interest and expertise. ELAP volunteers give their time in areas of clinic intake, office help, translation, grant writing, bookkeeping, social media, data entry, event support, and much more.

If you are a law student, our internship program offers a valuable hands-on legal experience. We provide internships in the areas of law related to domestic violence, housing, and the intersection of medical-legal issues. An ELAP staff attorney will supervise you during your internship. Our positions are unpaid, but we can sponsor you for academic credit.

To qualify: We accept 1Ls through 3Ls (first year through third year law students), students that qualify for Rule 9, and law school graduates waiting for bar results. We have a strong preference for students who demonstrate a commitment to social justice and who have an interest in working with low-income clients or survivors of domestic violence.  

To apply: Submit your materials by email

We accept applications year-round on a rolling basis. Applications will be given priority if they include a cover letter, resume, and writing sample.

We need the skills and expertise of paralegals, LLLTs, and other legal professionals.
