THE WORK
The nonprofit Alliance for Children's Rights needs lawyers to staff its Foster Care Benefits program, which helps foster parents obtain financial benefits to help cover the basic needs of children in their care. Attorneys will prepare demand letters, write briefs, negotiate cases, and present evidence for administrative hearings. Optional training is offered April 30 and May 6.

Over the years, the program has recovered more than $14 million in benefits for foster parents, its leaders say.
