Job o’ the Day: Pro Bono Coordinator For Pace Women’s Justice Center

Founded in 1991, Pace Women’s Justice Center was the first academic legal center in the country devoted to training attorneys and others on domestic violence issues. The Center’s mission is to end abuse by providing innovative legal programs including direct legal representation for victims and survivors of domestic violence and elder abuse, training, community education and outreach, service coordination, and information and referrals.

Today, with a staff of 17 and over 6,700 hours contributed annually by pro-bono attorneys, volunteers, and law students, the Center provides direct legal services to over 2,800 victims and survivors of domestic violence and elder abuse each year.

PWJC is looking for a Pro Bono Coordinator who is committed to the Center’s mission and work. The Pro Bono Coordinator will work closely with the Executive Director, Deputy Director and the management team to coordinate the PWJC Pro Bono Project, including developing and overseeing both new and existing pro bono projects, building relationships and recruiting volunteers from law firms, in-house legal departments, and the community, as well as training, managing and supervising the volunteers and supervising substantive work.
