Immigrant Justice Clinic and the Child Advocacy Clinic


The Rutgers Child Advocacy Clinic at Rutgers Law School in Newark, New Jersey seeks to hire a full-time Staff Attorney to begin immediately. The Staff Attorney will work on two separate, but closely related projects involving immigrant children: (1) The Staff Attorney will recruit, train, and mentor pro bono immigration practitioners who are willing to represent immigrant child clients where there is a potential claim for Special Immigration Juvenile Status (SIJS); and (2) the Staff Attorney will provide immigration representation to children in North Jersey who are in the custody of the New Jersey Division of Child Protection and Permanency.  The position will be based on the Law School's Newark campus, although there may be some ability to split time between the Newark and Camden campuses at the option of the attorney.  


The ideal candidate will have 1-3 years of experience in either family law or immigration law, along with excellent oral and written communication skills.  Bilingual (Spanish) preferred, but not required.  Experience working with children preferred, but not required.  


Salary $65-75,000.  This position is externally funded and contingent upon available funds.  This is the third year of the project, which is anticipated to move from one-year to two-year contract cycles shortly.
