Announcing a gorgeous exhibition in writing by Ann Cvetkovich. Her “Robert Lynch Remembered: an archival exhibition in writing” is in the latest issue of The Baffler (January 2021, no. 55).

Meditating on the journals, sonnets, photographs of family, quilts and other North Carolina rural art, porn, botanical specimens, and the ways we have cataloged, preserved, and made it all accessible, Cvetkovich’s piece is like a love poem to “a bit of twentieth-century gay life caught in perpetuity, a being whose life is remembered through the archive.”

The Ithaca Office of LawNY has immediate openings for 2 full-time AmeriCorps members and 2 half-time AmeriCorps members. Please indicate your interest in the Ithaca Office and your preference for a 12-month or 6-month term in your cover letter.

The Access to Justice Project is a partnership between LawNY® and AmeriCorps, America’s most preeminent volunteer service program, which seeks to address the legal needs of the poor by expanding the level of legal assistance available and helping low-income clients to access the legal system in order to achieve economic benefits, decent housing, health care and other critical basic needs. In addition, members work to recruit and support community volunteers and enhance efforts at collaboration with local human services agencies. LawNY, Inc. operates offices in Jamestown, Olean, Bath, Elmira, Ithaca, Geneva and Rochester, New York.

AmeriCorps members provide intake and screening services for income-eligible persons seeking legal assistance with civil law problems and outreach to underserved populations. They are offered the opportunity for direct, substantive legal experience, excellent training and a chance to make a critical difference for low-income and vulnerable populations and their communities.

Full-time, full-year members receive a living allowance of $715.42 semi-monthly for the duration of the contract term. They may also be eligible for aid in obtaining basic health coverage, an educational award of up to $6,195, childcare expenses and deferment of student loans. The successful candidate will serve full-time for twelve months (1,700 hours) in one of our seven LawNY office locations. The term of service may begin between November 1, 2020 and February 1, 2021 and can run through no later than January 31, 2022, depending upon start date. Term renewal may be available after that time.

We can be flexible about scheduling half-time hours. The notable distinction about the half-time positions is that while AmeriCorps defines full-time as 1700 hours per year, they define half-time as 900 hours performed within a term. Those hours could be scheduled as half-time (17.5 hours per week) for a full year, full-time (35 hours per week) for six months, or something in between (e.g., 100 hours per month for 9 months).

Member Responsibilities:

1. Provide screening and intake for low-income persons seeking civil legal assistance;
2. Recruit and support volunteer lawyers, students and community members;
3. Assist staff attorneys in providing legal services to clients ;
4. Work with community agencies serving low-income populations to strengthen collaborations;
5. Provide outreach and community education for targeted groups;
6. Participate on relevant staff committees and work groups;
7. Participate in impact cases or projects.

Member Qualifications:
Members should have at least two years of college or equivalent experience. Prior experience working with low-income persons is preferred.

Application Procedure:
To apply, please email a letter of interest indicating your preferred office location with a resume and (3) references to: Brenda Thompson, Human Resources Administrator at [email protected]. Please note that you may indicate one or more office location preference.

Legal Assistance of Western New York Inc.® (LawNY, Inc.) is an equal opportunity employer. LawNY, Inc. encourages applications from diverse candidates. LawNY, Inc. welcomes applications regardless of race, color, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy, national origin, age, disability, genetic information or any other consideration protected by law.

Undergrads thinking of going into Law?

Undergrads thinking of going into Law?

We are celebrating the success of the inaugural Cornell Defender Program. Our OADI teammates, Dr. Kristin Dade and Gabbie Smith, collaborated with partners at the Cornell Law School, Cornell Career Services, the New York State Office of Indigent Legal Services and the Office of Assigned Counsel for Tompkins County to launch the pilot cohort this summer.

"The students’ support was a product of the Cornell Defender Program, a 10-week pilot program that paired eight undergraduates and six Cornell Law School students with local trial attorneys to bolster their capacity to represent indigent clients in criminal and family courts.

The unique partnership with local and state officials – potentially a model for others around the state – also sought to strengthen the pipeline of students pursuing law degrees and careers, particularly among underrepresented first-generation students and students of color."
