Duties: Involves litigation at all levels, from administrative to state and federal court, as well as direct outreach to farmworkers.

The majority of outreach may occur on evenings or weekends during the summer months, although there are opportunities to conduct outreach year round.

Qualification and Experience

Qualifications: Must be graduates of law school and licensed to practice law in Iowa, be eligible for admission on motion or be available for the next scheduled bar examination. Prior experience practicing in federal courts or with poverty law issues is preferred. Due to the composition of Iowa’s agricultural workforce, the ability to speak fluent Spanish is strongly preferred.

Everyone Loves LawCrossing

LawCrossing is fantastic! When I am looking for a job, it is the first place I come to. The service is very good and I enjoyed the emails. LawCrossing has more jobs and it is more tailored. Other sites gave a lot of irrelevant results. Your site may have a great algorithm, but it felt like an actual person choosing jobs they felt would be good based on my search. I will always recommend this site!
