The Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) seeks a recent law graduate for an unpaid yearlong public policy fellowship (start and end dates are flexible). The candidate should be able to commit to a minimum of 20 hours per week.
CLASP's mission is to develop and advocate for policies at the federal, state and local levels that improve the lives of low income people. We seek policies that work to strengthen families and create pathways to education and work. Through careful research and analysis and effective advocacy, CLASP develops and promotes new ideas, mobilizes others, and directly assists governments and advocates to put in place successful strategies that deliver results that matter to people across America. We are nonpartisan and situated at the intersection of local practice, national research, and state and federal policy, and striving to translate each world to each other.
CLASP does not litigate or undertake legal representation. CLASP is a public policy organization which promotes policies on child care and early education, child welfare, temporary cash assistance, youth, basic skills and workforce training, employment retention and wage growth, postsecondary access and success, work/life and job quality, work supports, civil legal assistance and reducing poverty. For more detailed information, interested applicants should visit www.clasp.org for further information on CLASP's issues and work. Our goal is to create a position that fits both the interests of the applicant and the needs of CLASP. Please send a resume and cover letter noting your interest in any particular CLASP issue(s) to Alan W. Houseman, Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
