Civil Rights Law Project (CRLP)

The CRLP is a research based pro bono organization with flexible scheduling that allows volunteers to work on projects that suit them best. We are committed to protecting and promoting civil rights and social justice. CRLP works with organizations such as the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, Southern Poverty Law Center, New York Lawyers for the Public Interest, Centro de los Derechos del Migrante, and Community Legal Services of Philadelphia. We have supported these organizations in their efforts to advocate for felons being denied the right to vote, protect children from public school environmental health issues, support employees filing workplace harassment suits, protect the constitutionality of the Voting Rights Act, and support migrant workers.

Work with the CRLP is project-based. Members have an opportunity to volunteer for work with these organizations, completing multiple drafts of research memos used in impact litigation and direct service support. Volunteers will greatly improve their legal research and writing through supervised drafts, including line-editing from supervising students and attorneys.

Working with the CRLP, you will love being involved in interesting, challenging legal issues while remaining client-focused. When you work with these amazing organizations, you are not only supporting their clients directly, but also supporting all similarly-situated citizens and all of us in the protection of our constitutional liberties.
