Pro Bono Opportunities at Legal Momentum

Pro Bono Opportunities at Legal Momentum

Legal Momentum’s mission is to support women's efforts to eliminate sex-based discrimination and secure equal rights. We participate in numerous cases and projects in all areas of the law affecting women, including employment and housing discrimination, education, family law, violence against women, immigration, economic rights of low-income women, and eliminating gender bias in the courts. 

Do you enjoy serving the needs of your community? 

Would you like to volunteer your time to giving professional advice to local residents who cannot afford legal representation?

Legal Momentum offers a wide range of pro bono opportunities in several project and programmatic areas, including serving as lead counsel or co-counsel in litigation, researching and drafting legal memoranda and briefs, preparing Congressional testimony, drafting model legislation, and drafting informational pamphlets on legal topics.  Prospective pro bono counsel should expect most of their work to involve legal research and writing.  Projects are assigned as litigation, legislative or research needs arise.

We are looking for attorneys and advocates who specialize in a variety of legal matters, including but not limited to:

  • Domestic Violence
  • Employment discrimination
  • Family Law (Divorce and Child Custody)

Qualifications:

  • Ideally candidates should have 3+ years of legal experience in their field or area of expertise.
  • Good legal standing
  • Member of local bar subject matter committee.

If you are interested, please contact Brigitte Watson, Intake and Pro Bono Program Coordinator.
