Something new we are trying, here on the LSNTAP blog we will be posting job opening and RFPs from the community and posting them here. We are starting with doing a post on the first and third Tuesdays of each month and adjust from there. If you have questions, feedback, or something you would like to put up in the next post like this email me at ketn@nwjustice.org
 
For this inaugural post we have three job openings.
 
The first opening is for the position of Executive Director at LAF in Chicago. This is your chance to bring your experience and skills to this great organization, the only drawback is whoever takes this position is probably going to owe Cleveland Legal Aid some pizzas. Full information on this Executive Director position and how to apply can be found here.
 
The second opening is for a IT Project Manager over at Equal Justice Wyoming in Cheyenne. They are looking for someone to develop a variety of technology projects to support self represented litigants, legal aid advocates, and pro bono attorneys. Full information on this IT Project Manager position and how to apply can be found here.
 
The final opening is for a Pro Bono Director at Virginia Legal Aid Society in Lynchburg. This position involves a bunch of duties are increasing the number and effectiveness of attorneys and law students providing pro bono help. Particularly interesting is the goal of helping create and promote the use of a statewide pro bono portal. Full information on this Pro Bono Director position and how to apply can be found here.

Up to seven apps will be chosen for the class, no fee will charged to participants but as part of the application you will need to identify an expert who can spend a couple hours a week helping the team assigned to the app.
 
You can check out the embedded video below to get a feel for some of the apps that have been created in the past or check out the Iron Tech Lawyer webpage. If you are interested in applying take a look at the full RFP.

Project Description: A proposal should describe: 1) the organization submitting the proposal, 2) the nature and need that the app is intended to address, 3) the apps’ intended users, and 3) how the app fits within the organization’s service delivery model or the larger access to justice ecosystem.
 
Subject Matter Expert: Every proposal should identify one or more subject matter experts who will be available work with the student team assigned to the app. (Typically, SME’s devote approximately two hours a week to app development or less. SME’s are not required to have any technical expertise.)

We have two similar events coming up in the next month in the Seattle area.
 
The TeamChild Hackathon is happening this weekend Oct 7-8 and the Social Justice Hackathon is happening next month on Nov 4-6.
 
The TeamChild Hackathon is happening at the Code Fellows campus in south lake union and is themed around disrupting the school-to-prison pipeline. This is one of the first hackathons focused on this issue and will bring together lawyers, affected youth, coders, designers, and more to create new systems and tools to address this problem.
 
More information and registration details can be found at Eventbrite.
 
Early next month NJP and LSNTAP are hosting the Social Justice Game Jam
 
Game Jams are similar hackathons but the goal is to end the event with a playable game. In this event we are going to be bringing together the game developer and legal communities to create games that either raise awareness on issues that the public is largely ignoring or teach important legal skills and concepts.

More information and registration details can be found at Eventbrite.
