Legal Economic and Educational Advancement Project (LEEAP)
Fordham Law School's Feerick Center for Social Justice (FC) works with law students, alumni, and a broad range of partners on anti-poverty efforts. FC is committed to recruiting and retaining a team from different cultures, races, educational backgrounds, life experiences, socio-economic classes, sexual orientations, ages, genders, and abilities, especially team members from groups that have historically been underrepresented in professional workplaces. The FC administers the Attorney Emeritus Program (AEP) on behalf of the NYS Unified Court System. The Greater NYC AEP Coordinator places senior attorneys with legal services organizations to provide pro bono assistance to low-income NYers with unmet civil legal needs. The VISTA is involved in all aspects of program development and implementation. The VISTA will partner with a second FC AEP VISTA and work collaboratively with the Upstate NY AEP VISTA to support the Program statewide. This position is a part of an 11-member VISTA cadre at FC and 3 Project Sites. The VISTA will have monthly check-ins with FC senior staff, weekly program meetings with FC and LawNY senior staff, bi-monthly FC staff meetings, monthly professional development workshops, mid-monthly presentations led by the VISTA Leader, and opportunities to attend various academic programs and training sessions. This is a wonderful opportunity for someone considering a career in public interest law.
