The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, was formed in 1963 at the request of President John F. Kennedy to involve the private bar in providing legal services to address racial discrimination. The principal mission of the Lawyers’ Committee is to secure, through the rule of law, equal justice under law.

If you are a talented professional who wants to use your skills and hard work to further the cause of civil rights and civil justice, please consider applying for a career at the Lawyers’ Committee.

The Lawyers’ Committee does not discriminate on the basis of actual or perceived race, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, disability, medical condition, marital status, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, family responsibility, personal appearance, genetic information, matriculation, political affiliation, or any other status protected under law.

We strongly encourage candidates of color and candidates from underrepresented communities to apply. Positions will remain open until filled, and applications will be reviewed as received. Salary and benefits are competitive for a nonprofit legal organization.
