Swords to Plowshares seeks candidates to sponsor for Equal Justice Works, Skadden, or law school sponsored public interest fellowships.
Our legal services include free assistance to veterans who seek Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) healthcare, disability compensation, and pension; we also specialize in military discharge reviews and upgrades for veterans who received less than fully Honorable discharges. We also leverage our direct legal services for policy advocacy and through innovative programming. We are a small, passionate team seeking candidates to sponsor for both Equal Justice Works and Skadden fellowships. Applicants are encouraged to propose project ideas. We seek someone who is dynamic, creative, and highly motivated.
Veterans are strongly encouraged to apply. Women, people of color, people with disabilities and LGBTQ individuals are also encouraged to apply. Please note that Swords to Plowshares will make reasonable accommodations for applicants and employees with disabilities.
