Opportunity
This position requires someone able and passionate about human rights and about its application to communities and individuals. 

JustCommunity does everything from court cases (mainly criminal) to community advocacy.

This role involves important research, file structuring and legal assistance on major files, relating to human rights issues.
The focus is on high priority cases and this experience is likely to be different from standard law firm experiences (based on feedback received from previous students).

This means JustCommunity usually has a high demand for roles and you'll need to make clear what may set you apart in doing this work.

They look forward to receiving your interest and are happy to keep your information on record for future paid positions.
