    I worked at Legal Services of Northern California full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I was not micro-managed and I was allowed to focus on professional development while completing tasks and responsibilities (i.e., research re: legal issues).

    Cons

    Inconsistency in the management's expectations and as a result, inconsistency in day to day operations and reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Clearer expectations of day to day responsibilities and clearer direction regarding the depth of legal advise legal advocates provide.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Legal Services of Northern California (Sacramento, CA) in August 2012.

    Interview

    First, you apply for a fellowship sponsorship opportunity per the announcement, by emailing the Deputy Director. Then, you wait to hear if you are selected for an interview, an assistant sent an email with time slots to choose from. It appeared by the number of time slots available around 5-10 people were interviewed, presumably mostly over the phone. Next, the interview. Then, they will get back with folks in about a week. Last, the person selected will be paired with a staff person to create the project summary for Skadden or Equal Justice Works for funding.

    WARNING: LSNC has not gotten a EJW fellow in the last two years, so it is possible the person who is selected for this opportunity with still not be funded, which they won't know about until January probably. Just be prepared with a Plan B.

    Interview Questions

    • The two interviewers were pretty to the point. A common question they asked (if you are used to the field) is about your experience with poverty. If you are unfamiliar with this from non-profits that work on poverty, be sure to plan an answer if asked a question along those lines.   Answer Question
