Public Interest Position - Paid Opportunity

There are at least two openings for current Chicago-Kent students who are eligible for work study. The Advice Desk at the Daley Center is now hiring students through a work study program to work in paralegal/administrative positions. The candidates will have an opportunity to work in a fast-paced, public interest environment while helping to provide administrative and paralegal help to make the Desk more efficient and therefore allow more clients to receive pro bono legal assistance. Some of the duties might include: greeting and identifying eligible clients, filling out or updating forms, database entry and maintenance, assisting elderly and disabled clients in retrieving their court files or finding a courtroom, etc.

The Advice Desk provides interviewing, counseling, and limited representation to indigent defendants who seek assistance at the Circuit Court of Cook County. Approximately sixty percent of the cases involve eviction defense and forty percent involve tort, contract, personal injury and collection matters.

This position pays $10 an hour. You must be eligible for work study and your eligibility will be verified upon receipt of your application. Please submit a letter of interest to Prof. Ed Kraus (ekraus@kentlaw.edu) in the Law Offices.
