Job Description

The Colorado Access to Justice Commission in partnership with the Colorado Lawyers Committee are searching for TWO PART-TIME Virtual Pro Se Clinic Legal Facilitators with the possibility of transitioning to full-time positions, to support the relaunch of Colorado’s first Virtual Pro Se Clinic (VPC). Now in its eleventh year, the VPC program supports monthly free virtual legal help clinics at numerous mostly rural libraries across Colorado. Speaking one-on-one with a knowledgeable volunteer attorney can make an enormous difference to pro se litigants and has a tremendous impact on access to justice for underserved communities.


Legal Facilitators will oversee almost-daily 3-hour clinics during which they will spend 15-20 minutes meeting virtually with each clinic patron (pro se litigant) answering questions and explaining court procedures and processes in all areas of Colorado civil law. Legal Facilitators will onboard and train new volunteer lawyers on how to effectively assist pro se clinic patrons. Legal Facilitators will also be responsible for serving as “first chair” while volunteer attorneys serve as “second chair,” until volunteer attorneys are ready to conduct clinics on their own. In addition to overseeing the clinics, training and supervising volunteer attorneys, Legal Facilitators will assist clinic administrators from the Colorado Access to Justice Commission and the Colorado Lawyers Committee with operations, such as communications, data collection, scheduling and technology assistance. This part-time position will be remote and will be shared between the two Legal Facilitators. Workload will vary week to week, however Legal Facilitators will be expected to maintain routine weekly hours so clinics can be conducted on fixed schedules each month.
