Law-related AmeriCorps Program for college grads

The Southeastern Massachusetts Legal Assistance Corp. (SMLAC) is sponsoring 25 annual AmeriCorps positions for college graduates interested in helping provide necessary legal help to poor people, while gaining experience working in law offices.  The positions are distributed throughout Massachusetts, and carry a $15,000 stipend, health benefits, and $4,725 toward the payment of eligible educational loans. 

For more information, go to SMLAC’s website.

As a former legal services attorney myself, let me add that the kind of experience you can gain from this program is unique.  It gives you an unparalleled opportunity to work on actual cases with real clients in a law office.  And, you’ll be helping people too!  I strongly recommend checking it out.
