The Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, was formed in 1963 at the request of President John F. Kennedy to involve the private bar in providing legal services to address racial discrimination. The principal mission of the Lawyers' Committee is to secure, through the rule of law, equal justice under law.
If you are a talented professional who wants to use your skills, hard work, and expertise to further the cause of civil rights and civil justice, please consider applying for a career at the Lawyers' Committee.
