Paralegals (Remote)
Full-time and Part-time

About us:

Everyday there are families afraid of losing their homes; children afraid losing parents to jail; and parents afraid of losing children to divorce. They deserve robust legal protection. ACLC makes quality legal representation available to families who would not otherwise have access to it. We also work in the fields of impact litigation, policy advocacy, and supporting community groups.

 

Our organizational culture:

We are committed to being just as progressive within the workplace as we are in public – including across-the-board pay equity, transparent decision-making, and collaborative planning for the future. We encourage self-starters and will support your professional growth.

Job Responsibilities:

The position calls for a person who is an organized self-starter. You will work closely with attorneys but will not be micromanaged. You will be asked to:

  • Support attorneys representing clients in court.

  • Prepare legal documents including pleadings and discovery.

  • Maintain accurate files and track deadlines.

  • Interview clients and witnesses.

 

Full time paralegals can expect to work about 40 hours a week.

Part time paralegals can expect to work about 20-25 hours a week.

Qualifications:

  • At least 2 years of prior experience as a paralegal in a law firm setting.

  • Fluency in English and Spanish, both written and oral, is highly desirable.

  • A demonstrated interest in economic, social, and racial justice is desirable.

  • We value diversity. Women, people of color, LGBTQIA identifying people, and people with disabilities are encouraged to apply.

 

Compensation

  • Full time: $64,200 annual salary.

  • Part time: $32.10/hour

  • Health insurance

 

Remote work options:

We are happy to hire outside of Austin. Our staff began working fully-remotely when the COVID pandemic began. That has worked very well for us, and we have no plans to end that flexibility.
