Created by the Legislature in 1927, the State Bar of California is a public corporation within the Judicial Branch of state government, serving as an administrative arm of the California Supreme Court. The State Bar licenses attorneys and regulates the profession and practice of law in California by administering the California Bar Exam; enforcing Rules of Professional Conduct for attorneys; disciplining attorneys who violate rules and laws; advancing access to justice; and promoting diversity and inclusion in the legal system.
The State Bar of California is the largest State Bar in the country and one of the largest in the world. The State Bar licenses more than 250,000 attorneys, investigates approximately 16,000 complaints of attorney misconduct annually, and has historically distributed over $50 million in grants each year to legal aid organizations (more than $80 million in 2020). It is headquartered in San Francisco and also has an office in Los Angeles.
“ The State Bar of California’s mission is to protect the public and includes the primary functions of licensing, regulation and discipline of attorneys; the advancement of the ethical and competent practice of law; and the promotion of efforts for greater access to, and inclusion in, the legal system .”
THE OFFICE OF ACCESS & INCLUSION
The State Bar Office of Access & Inclusion encompasses the critical work of increasing access to legal services, through IOLTA and Equal Access Fund grant administration and policymaking as well as increasing inclusion and diversity of the legal profession, through data, policymaking, rule making and coordination and liaison efforts. The office builds the framework to ensure that innovations, policy developments, and grant making inform and guide one another.
One core function of this office is to oversee the State Bar's legal aid grants benefitting organizations providing direct legal services to low-income Californians, including immigrants, seniors, veterans, and people with disabilities. Through these grants, the State Bar seeks to close the justice gap and provide access to legal services and access to justice. The office also guides State Bar policy on access to justice and legal services and delivering on the access goals and objectives set forth in the State Bar’s strategic plan. The office is also responsible for leading the Bar on diversity and inclusion initiatives, including through support of the Council on Access and Fairness and Bar driven initiatives. These initiatives support the goal of increasing diversity in the legal profession with a goal that the legal profession reflect the diversity of California.
THE POSITION As a member of the Executive Management Team, the Director is responsible for planning, directing, and managing efforts to achieve the access to justice and diversity and inclusion missions of the State Bar.
Organizational Leadership The Office of Access & Inclusion has undergone an important restructuring over the past 2 years, creating a diverse portfolio of responsibility for all senior staff members designed to provide a broader more informed and more effective perspective on the work of the office. The office has also taken a much greater leadership role in efforts to diversify the profession. The State Bar stands ready for a new Director to implement and continue the organization’s urgent and necessary work. The Director will operationalize this commitment in the organization’s daily work and cultivate and maintain a workplace culture that values equity and diversity, is culturally competent, and in which all staff are supported, inspired, included, and open to change and growth. Additionally, the Director will manage a team of 14, including two staff located in the Los Angeles office, with the assistance of three subordinate supervisors.
Addressing the Justice Gap Utilizing the learnings of an exciting statewide Justice Gap Study, the new Director will be expected to assess how the results of the study could or should guide the important policy and grantmaking activities of the office. The Director will also be charged with increasing resources for legal aid, developing new approaches to serve modest means Californians, exploring issues on the right to counsel, and improving the diversity in the legal profession.
Advocate on Behalf of Californians The Director will serve as a liaison and spokesperson with the Judicial Council, legal services organizations, the Legislature, law schools, and other local, state, and national entities regarding access to justice and diversity and inclusion related issues and activities. And to act as in informed advocate, the Director will form and foster deep relationships with organizations addressing the justice gap and serving modest means Californians and build bridges to the entities that stand poised to help further their work.

New York, NY
UnLocal is a dynamic and rapidly growing community-centered legal service organization that provides direct legal representation and community education to New York City’s undocumented immigrant communities. UnLocal seeks to identify specific gaps in services that are not sufficiently provided elsewhere and tailors its programming to best serve undocumented New Yorkers. UnLocal accomplishes its mission through its two main programs: the Legal Representation Program and the Community Education Program. In 2019, UnLocal's legal team collectively worked on over 600 immigration cases. Through outreach, UnLocal coordinated 68 community education events throughout the five boroughs of New York City with 82 grassroots partners. 1,810 attendees participated in Know-Your-Rights trainings, emergency planning sessions and informational seminars on current events in immigration law, and received free legal consultations. In an environment of unjust and harmful immigration policies, UnLocal has committed to stand by all immigrants by expanding programming and exploring new ways to collaborate with immigrant communities on a grassroots level that keeps constituents informed and connected.
UnLocal, Inc. was founded in 2008 by Michele Lampach and Laura Stein and originally conceived as an online resource for immigrant New Yorkers to provide information about New York-based social services. UnLocal, Inc. volunteers conducted a needs assessment by organizing a meeting of immigrant leaders and services providers, wrote a business plan in collaboration with NYU’s Stern School of Business and created an internship program at the International High School of Prospect Heights, in which recent immigrant teens participated in the business plan process.
After a pause, in 2011, UnLocal became active once again and secured 501(c)(3) status with the support of CUNY School of Law’s Community Legal Resource Network (CLRN) Incubator for Justice, an incubating space for individuals and nonprofits aimed at serving communities underserved by legal services. With CLRN’s support, UnLocal revised its mission and became a direct legal services provider and community education organization for New York’s City’s undocumented immigrants.
Now, UnLocal finds itself at a pivotal moment as the organization’s founder, Michele Lampach, steps down from her role as Executive Director. While UnLocal has grown since its founding and has been able to show flexibility in program delivery over the years, it has always stayed true to its values:
Providing and expanding access to immigration legal representation especially for undocumented immigrants, that is community-based, trustworthy, collaborative, affirming and multilingual.
Developing projects to fill gaps in services that address emerging and changing needs.
Recognizing the need for holistic advocacy, including referral-based case management and collaboration with community-based organizations and services, to provide truly comprehensive legal representation.
Listening to directly impacted individuals and communities to drive the direction, dissemination, and priorities for UnLocal’s legal representation and community education.
The new Executive Director will steward UnLocal’s multifaceted approach that aims to address longer-term needs: social and political rights, cultural and religious diversity, and citizenship and participation. Ultimately, this approach will lead to increased stability and opportunities among New York City immigrant communities.
More information about UnLocal may be found at: https://www.unlocal.org/ .
Opportunities and Challenges Facing the EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

She/He/They will support the organization in navigating the complex needs of undocumented immigrants, guiding decision-making on how the organization can work within and outside legal avenues for serving clients and pursuing social change.

The International Refugee Assistance Project (IRAP) works through a robust network of staff, pro bono attorneys and law students to fill a major gap in access to legal aid for refugees, asylum seekers, and other displaced people. IRAP has become the first advocacy organization to provide comprehensive legal representation to refugees throughout the registration, protection and resettlement processes. As fear, division, hatred, and economic uncertainty persist in the global consciousness and manifest in discriminatory policies, speech, and actions, individuals across the world must respond by demanding and upholding commitments to justice. IRAP is leveraging its volunteers and resources to fight back and ensure that we continue to uphold the humanitarian tradition of welcoming those who are in need of refuge.
IRAP’s Legal Services Department is growing in response to the increased demand to protect those whose rights are being threatened and is now seeking nominations and applications for the position of Legal Services Director.
Since its founding in 2008, IRAP has used legal aid, litigation and advocacy to protect and advance the rights of refugees, both domestically and internationally; the organization has also remained committed to developing the next generation of human rights attorneys through its work with law students. The global turn against refugee resettlement coupled with IRAP’s highly effective model has led to a period of rapid expansion to meet new levels of demand. In the past two years, IRAP’s annual budget has increased from $2 million to $9 million, and over the past six years, its staff has grown from ten to seventy.
Reporting to IRAP’s Executive Director, Becca Heller, the Legal Services Director will lead a team of five talented program directors who oversee the work of over 40 staff. The Legal Services Department focuses on protecting the rights of refugees, and the Director will provide critical strategic partnership to the Executive Director as IRAP navigates this new phase of growth. The Legal Services Director will provide direct supervision to the U.S. Legal Services Director, Middle East Director, Director of Pro Bono, the Director of Complementary Pathways and the Intake and Legal Information Director. S/he/they will oversee staff based in New York City, Jordan, Lebanon, and remotely around the world.
The ideal candidate will be an inclusive, passionate leader deeply committed to IRAP’s mission and clients. S/he/they will be an experienced manager with the proven ability to develop and lead successful teams in delivering the highest quality legal and advocacy services. The Director will be a decisive, keenly analytical leader and thinker who will build and support healthy culture around prioritization, team communication and decision making. S/he/they will be able to lead from an anti-oppression lens and understand how to support clients and staff impacted by trauma directly and vicariously. The Director must have a law degree, and admission to practice law in the United States is a plus.

The National Immigration Law Center (NILC) is seeking applications and nominations for the position of Legal Director. Established in 1979, NILC is the leading advocacy organization in the U.S. exclusively dedicated to defending and advancing the rights and opportunities of low-income immigrants and their loved ones. NILC’s mission is grounded in the belief that everyone living in the U.S.—regardless of race, gender/gender identity, immigration, and economic status—should have equal access to justice, resources, educational, and economic opportunities that enable them to achieve their full human potential. NILC is committed to advancing its mission—which intersects race, immigration status, and class—through a racial, economic, and gender justice and equity orientation. NILC seeks to achieve just laws and policies that address systemic inequities, create narrative and culture change for an inclusive and equitable society, and build a healthier and more powerful movement. Over the years, NILC has been at the forefront of many of the country’s greatest challenges when it comes to immigration issues, including landmark legal decisions and protecting fundamental human and civil rights. It plays a major leadership role in advancing policies that promote the ability of low-income immigrants to prosper and thrive.
In the aftermath of the 2016 elections, NILC embarked on the development of a new strategic framework that shifted its focus from a policy-centered one to a people-centered and holistic approach towards policy advocacy and impact litigation. NILC’s roots lie at the intersection of immigration law and laws and policies governing employment, education, health, public benefits, and criminal justice. Building on this, NILC will advance policies that address the immediate, everyday needs of immigrants and systemic changes —rather than hoping that these needs will be met through “comprehensive” federal immigration legislation.
NILC’s legal department plays a critical role in the organization’s refined strategic direction and in ensuring its ability to fight for justice and dignity for low-income immigrants and other vulnerable immigrant communities. At a point of rapid growth and re-building, the new Legal Director will lead the integration of NILC’s new strategic framework into the legal department’s work, support and manage a passionate and dedicated staff of attorneys and legal professionals to drive the mission and direction of the legal department, and contribute to the organization-wide continued fight towards long-term transformational change for immigrant communities.
The ideal candidate will be a seasoned litigator with demonstrated experience integrating legal strategy across campaigns and program teams. She/He/They will be an excellent people manager with an ability to work collaboratively with staff in equitable and inclusive ways that honor the identities, backgrounds, and experiences of the team and colleagues across the organization. The ideal candidate will bring a passion for immigrant justice and a deep commitment to community-centered advocacy and litigation. She/He/They will be a charismatic partner with proven relationship building skills to work and communicate with other organizations and partners in the immigrants’ rights space. The director must have a law degree, and federal civil litigation experience is highly preferred.
