Northwest Justice Project (NJP) is a not-for-profit statewide law firm that pursues its mission of Combating Injustice • Strengthening Communities • Protecting Human Dignity through legal representation, community partnerships, and education. NJP seeks applications from qualified attorneys committed to supporting our mission through the work of our Spokane office.
This is a full-time, fully benefited position with one year funding from the Office of Civil Legal Aid (OCLA) to expand its capacity to serve those facing evictions or other housing problems as a result of the COVID-19 emergency. In addition to this temporary opportunity, NJP anticipates the Washington State Legislature will increase its investments in housing justice, enabling NJP to further increase staffing in regular long term positions. NJP has a long history of filling open positions through existing staff, thus there is potential for longer term employment should the funding be received.
NJP is especially interested in qualified candidates with professional, personal and/or service experience that allows them to contribute to and support the legal aid community’s commitment to race equity. Must be willing to be engaged with the community to be served.
