University Title Staff Attorney
Working Title Greif Fellow
Department Law College Administration
Department Location Columbus
Requisition Number 444343
Summary of Duties

The Moritz College of Law, in conjunction with The Greif Foundation, is pleased to announce that it is now accepting applications for a one year position as the Greif Fellow in Juvenile Human Trafficking for 2018-19.

The Greif Fellow will receive referrals from community partners who encounter juvenile trafficking victims. The Fellow will provide quality representation in resulting legal matters, carrying a caseload of up to 50 youth victims at a time. Those cases will include representation in delinquency cases, where juveniles face the possibility of incarceration in a detention center or youth prison, out of home placement, fines, and probation or community service. The Fellow will assist in filing petitions alleging that the juveniles are in need of children services resources, including housing, assistance in learning independent living skills, and re-building family relationships. If a represented youth also has children, the Fellow will work to keep that family together and safe, utilizing the courts when necessary and appropriate. If a juvenile needs to adjust her immigration status in order to become a lawful permanent resident, the Fellow will identify and pursue the appropriate legal remedy.

The Greif Fellow will practice in Franklin and surrounding counties, including Delaware, Fairfield, Licking, Logan, and Union counties. The Fellow will maintain alliances with local providers in order to identify victims and maintain referral systems. The Fellow will directly serve children while gaining expertise in juvenile human trafficking and building connections with community agencies serving this population. It is anticipated that the Fellow will use the fellowship experience to move into a permanent public interest law position. This position is up to a one year appointment.

Additional Information for Applicants:
