DIRECTOR, CHILDREN'S LAW CLINIC   APPLY TODAY

 

Award-winning legal advocacy organization for abused kids seeks Director for pro bono Children’s Law Clinic.

 

Gen Justice is expanding and seeks an experienced, creative attorney to direct and expand its pro bono Children’s Law Clinic.

 

The Clinic Director will handle Arizona-based dependency cases for the law clinic year-round, assist older foster youth who are transitioning out of the foster care system with legal needs, and work to remove barriers to foster children’s educational success. The Director will also train, support, and advise child welfare advocates and caretakers, including foster parents, Court Appointed Special Advocates, social workers, and court and licensing agency personnel. The successful candidate will have experience in civil litigation, an entrepreneurial approach to problem-solving, and an ability to manage others in a fast-paced, growing, and dynamic workplace. A proven record in child welfare and foster care dependency legal matters is strongly encouraged, but not required. The directorship is a Phoenix-based position that will report to Gen Justice’s Legal Director. The position requires a strong in-office presence but allows for flexible scheduling in a foster and family friendly environment.

 

To apply, please submit a cover letter with salary requirements, resume, and a writing sample to careers@genjustice.org.
