Columbia Legal Services
Columbia Legal Services (CLS) represents communities facing poverty and oppression, and they use every legal tool available on their behalf. CLS has a special responsibility to serve people whose access to free legal services is restricted, due to institutionalization or immigration status. Through impact litigation, policy reform, and innovative partnerships, their staff works together to further their mission to achieve social and economic justice for all, and to reveal and end actions that harm the communities they serve. They share a deep commitment to serve and advocate alongside their clients as they seek justice together. Their vision of justice: when people have the necessary tools and opportunity to achieve social and economic justice, a more equitable and inclusive society is possible. The ideal candidate for any position at Columbia Legal Services will be able to articulate their role in the achievement of that vision.
