The Louisiana Center for Children’s Rights is seeking a staff attorney to provide high-quality, zealous, client-directed legal representation to children in Orleans Parish.  Click here for the position description and application information.

LCCR hires advocates — including social workers, youth advocates, investigators, attorneys, and administrative staff — who are deeply committed to our mission, vision, and values; who have experience in serving at-risk youth; and who work well in teams and in fast-paced environments. We believe that every team member brings vital skills and viewpoints to the high-quality advocacy that our clients deserve.

LCCR values diversity and is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. Women, people of color, LGBT persons, and people with disabilities are encouraged to apply for all positions.



LCCR is always interested in working with talented volunteers and interns who are committed to serving young people in Louisiana’s juvenile justice system.

Law Clerks

Law clerks are law students who work closely with LCCR’s staff attorneys on all aspects of direct legal representation. Law clerks may also assist with systemic justice system reform projects through research, education, investigation, and the preparation of briefs and position papers.

Summer law clerk applicants are encouraged to apply early in the academic year, as we commonly hire the majority of our clerks for each summer during the preceding fall.

Social Work Interns

Social work interns are supervised by our Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and assist with client assessment, case planning, service referrals, case management, and building community relationships.

Volunteers and other interns may come to us with any level of education and experience, and their work with us depends on their interests and capacity and our needs.

If you are interested in volunteering or an internship – other than a law clerkship or a social work internship – with LCCR, please email Roxanne Sutfield.



We are interested in discussing potential fellowship opportunities with highly-qualified 3Ls and recent graduates.  To discuss applying for a fellowship with LCCR as the host organization, please email Joshua Perry.  Note that LCCR does not itself provide fellowship funding.  Interested applicants must be prepared to seek funding themselves, with LCCR’s support.
