5Legal Aid seeks support from experienced paralegals, or paralegal students seeking externships, to help with research, practice group administrative assistance and other project duties related to case loads.  Legal Aid requires a commitment of 12 hours a week for a period of three months, or the equivalent of a current externship requirement.

Practice groups include Community Engagement, Consumer, Family, Community Advocacy Program, Employment, Immigration, Public Benefits, Tax, Unemployment Compensation, Housing, and VLP/Intake.
