Supervising Attorney – Reentry Project

Legal Services of New Jersey, an Edison-based statewide non-profit that provides civil legal assistance to low income New Jerseyans, has an immediate opening for a supervising attorney for its Reentry Project (REP), providing representation, advocacy and outreach to individuals impacted by juvenile and criminal justice systems to help them remove legal barriers and fight discrimination.

REP staff provide assistance in expungement and record clearing; employment, housing and other criminal-record related barriers; and civil rights. Staff will also prepare publications, conduct outreach, speak at conferences and roundtables regarding civil legal issues of prisoners and people released from prison, train staff about reentry issues and analyze and comment on policies, regulations and legislation concerning corrections, reentry and juvenile justice.

The Supervising Attorney will be responsible for the overall management of the project including the oversight of project mission, grant development and management. The Supervising Attorney will supervise a staff attorney and paralegal in addition to maintaining a caseload and participating in the above responsibilities. Strong candidates will have several years of experience in reentry or related substantive areas and in supervision of other attorneys.

LSNJ offers a positive workplace among colleagues who enjoy and are passionate about their work. We encourage a supportive team work environment, with work-life balance. Benefits include comprehensive health and retirement plans and in-house trainings that offer CLE credit.

To be considered, send a cover letter describing the reasons for your interest in the position and related legal background, along with a resume detailing your previous related experience and the states and years of all bar admissions. Please also include two recent legal writing samples. Send all required components to jobs@lsnj.org. EOE.
