Join Our Team

We are a team of talented professionals who are passionate about our mission to transform the lives of abused, neglected and at-risk children through compassionate legal advocacy, clinical services, education and public policy reform. 

Administrative Assistant

The Rocky Mountain Children’s Law Center (RMCLC) is a non-profit legal organization with the mission of advocating for children and youth, driving systemic reform, and boldly challenging the status quo so that every young person who has experienced trauma or instability has the opportunity to thrive. The onsite Administrative Assistant supports the staff, manages essential office functions, serves as primary receptionist to callers and visitors, provides resources and referrals to callers to address their specific needs and circumstances, and aids program staff with Spanish interpretation/translation. This position requires excellent organizational skills, careful attention to detail, and strong communication skills in both English and Spanish.

Staff Attorney

This position is primarily focused on leading our Young Adult Legal Advocacy program by providing civil legal services for young people transitioning out of foster care/juvenile justice or experiencing homelessness. The purpose of this program is to break down barriers that young people may face as they transition to adulthood. These cases may include expungement of juvenile records, name change/identification, landlord-tenant disputes, public benefits appeals, and other related areas. This position will also be responsible for building and maintaining relationships with community partners and engaging in policy work on related issues. As a member of our larger direct legal advocacy team, the position will also take cases as needed in other RMCLC program areas.

Past volunteer, internship, or career-related experience in family law, special education, civil legal services (tenant rights and eviction, identification, government assistance, expungement, and discrimination), or juvenile law matters is useful—but not essential.
