Fellowship Opportunities @ Greater Boston Legal Services

04 Apr 2017 12:32 PM | Stephanie Giancola (Administrator)

Greater Boston Legal Services, Inc. (GBLS) will sponsor a limited number of applicants for two national fellowship programs: Equal Justice Works and the Skadden Fellowship Program.  Both programs require applicants to develop a proposed project with a sponsoring legal agency.  Selections for the fellowships are made by the national programs and not by GBLS.  Because of the time needed to develop projects acceptable to GBLS and the applicants, interested persons should contact GBLS as soon as possible. Earlier applicants will have an advantage. 

GBLS is an AA/EO/Handicap-accessible employer, committed to diversity in the workforce and regards differences as assets.  Interested individuals must submit a cover letter and resume to Sonia Marquez, Director of Human Resources by email at jobs@gbls.org with the subject line “Fellowship Opportunities”.  Please include in your cover letter a proposed project and indicate unit of interest. For more information contact: Ms Marquez, at (617) 603-1805. 

GBLS is the oldest and largest legal services program in New England. Throughout its history, GBLS has been committed to providing aggressive high-quality civil legal services to as many poor people as possible.  The people who seek our assistance most often are women and children who need protection from abuse; families and elderly who face eviction from their homes; the homeless who have been denied temporary or permanent shelter; and single parents who have been inappropriately refused welfare, food stamps, or medical benefits.  GBLS also provides assistance to client groups such as the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless, the Massachusetts Senior Action Council, and the tenants of the Boston Housing Authority. 

GBLS' main office, located at 197 Friend Street in downtown Boston, houses the administrative staff and the following specialized units:  Family, Elderly, Health & Disability, Mass. Medicare Advocacy Project, Housing, Immigration, Harvard Immigration Clinic, Employment, CORI & Re-entry Project, Welfare, Asian Outreach and Consumer Rights.  GBLS’ Cambridge office consists of advocate teams comprised of Family, Housing, Elder, Income, Mental Health & Disability Rights.
