    The Center for Juvenile Law and Policy (CJLP) at Loyola Law School is a community legal clinic and research center dedicated to advocating on behalf of youth in the juvenile delinquency system.

    Social Workers are a vital part of our practice model. The social worker will be integrated into almost all areas of the law students’ training curriculum and our work with youth involved in the juvenile justice system. Our model of holistic representation begins with a comprehensive assessment of our clients and their families to determine what services need to be put in place to ensure that our clients are in the best position possible to succeed. The assessment also allows the team to understand the client in a holistic manner. The social worker’s assessment will be used during the course of the case to craft the most appropriate disposition for the client and to determine what, if any, additional expertise needs to be brought to bear on the case. Social workers are vital to defense preparation and collaboration with experts when our young clients have mental health issues or developmental disabilities that impact their competency to stand trial and ability to be transferred to adult court. The social worker works with students to create innovative disposition alternatives for the court and, along with the students, provides pro-active post-disposition support and case management to assure children successfully complete probation.

    Responsibilities will include, but are not limited to:

    • Advocacy on behalf of children who are holistically represented by the Juvenile Justice Clinic and Youth Justice Education Clinic.
    • Clinical assessment; intervention; rehabilitation, sentencing, and resource recommendations.
    • Case management and support of clients in completing terms of probation.
    • Supervision of MSW interns.
    • Report directly to the supervising Social Worker. Perform other related duties as assigned or requested by the Clinical Director and supervising Social Worker.

    The Law School reserves the right to add or change duties at any time.

    Qualifications:

    • Experience working with or supervising graduate students; experience working with attorneys.
    • Working knowledge of the delinquency and dependency system in Los Angeles; extensive knowledge of Los Angeles community resources and network of services for at-risk youths and their families. 
    • Proven dedication to serving at-risk youth and criminal/juvenile justice reform.
    • Exemplary communication and advocacy skills required.
    • Typically a Master of Arts Degree in Social Work and a minimum of two years post-graduate experience. 
    • Spanish speaking required.
    • The social worker will be expected to continue upgrading knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to keep abreast of regulation/policy changes.

    Applications should include a resume, cover letter, and writing sample. To apply and for more information, please go to https://jobs.lmu.edu/postings/26569. Applications will be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis. Preference will be given to complete applications received by August 1, 2016.
