Profile

Americorps JD Program The program provides law students with the opportunity to earn a $1,230 Segal AmeriCorps Education Award for dedicating 300 hours of service to a qualifying legal project with a nonprofit program or other qualifying organization. The law students will improve the lives of victims of elder abuse by providing legal assistance to older adult victims of abuse, neglect, and exploitation. Law students focus specifically on assisting the Fellows with responding to instances of elder abuse. Students will help sites conduct outreach to other service agencies and to vulnerable elders, and will help their sites provide other necessary legal services to older adult clients who have been victims of abuse. Students also assist attorneys with legal research, drafting briefs, outreach and intake screenings. Students in the program who are serving at organizations without a Fellow will serve in other areas of civil legal aid, including elder abuse issues as needed. Students help to bring a greater awareness of elder abuse issues to locations where there are currently no lawyers available to provide elder justice services. Should be a current law student at an accredited law school. Duration: May 21 to August 17, 2018.
