Non-Attorney Volunteers

Legal Services of Northern Virginia also needs non-attorneys to assist us in providing services to individuals in our service area.

Non-Attorney Volunteer Opportunities

Legal Interns: Legal interns support staff attorneys in providing legal assistance to LSNV clients. This support is designed to help LSNV pursue its mission of providing access to justice to the indigent and underserved. Interns assist LSNV attorneys in conducting client meetings, performing legal research, drafting legal documents, and preparing trial binders. Legal interns must be students at an accredited law school or non-Virginia barred attorneys, and should demonstrate an interest in LSNV’s mission of public service. Interns should have strong multi-task skills, should be proactive, interested in litigation, strong interpersonal skills, and should be sensitive to the needs of our clients.

Paralegal Interns: Paralegal interns support staff attorneys in providing legal assistance to LSNV clients. This support is designed to help LSNV pursue its mission of providing access to justice to the indigent and underserved. Paralegals will be expected to assist LSNV attorneys as they meet with clients, draft legal documents, prepare trial binders and conduct day-to-day litigation assignments. Paralegal interns must demonstrate an interest in LSNV’s mission of public service.

Interpreters: LSNV is in need of assistance from volunteer interpreters in order to serve our non-English speaking clients. Please follow up with LSNV’s language access coordinator, Eric Moe at emoe@lsnv.org.
