Public Service – Attorneys working for the Center for Arkansas Legal Services and A Non-Profit Organization that Provides Free Legal Services have the opportunity to engage in meaningful public service work with a client population that needs and appreciates the help they receive. While not every client achieves the outcome they hope for, most appreciate the help they receive.

Professional Challenges – Legal aid attorneys have been at the forefront of significant advocacy nationwide. Arkansas legal aid attorneys are protecting the rights of tenants, shielding victims of domestic violence, and helping protect Arkansans who are low-income, elderly or have a disability from consumer scams and financial loss.

A Community of Advocates – When you work for the Center for Arkansas Legal Services or A Non-Profit Organization that Provides Free Legal Services, you are a part of a national and statewide community of poverty law advocates.

Since the 1960s, legal aid attorneys have created and maintained networks for support and training. You can help make access to justice a reality for all Arkansans.
