Work with Us
The Center for the Rights of Abused Children has helped 500,000 children and counting.
Join our mission to protect children, change laws and inspire people – to ensure every abused child has a bright future.
The Center for the Rights of Abused Children seeks an experienced leader to spearhead the creation and development of research, reforms, and policies and expanding our footprint to more states and into federal law as appropriate. The right candidate will be an accomplished reformer, with a proven history of creating innovative policy ideas and overseeing their enactment into law.
At The Center for the Rights of Abused Children, you will receive hands-on experience working alongside our legal and policy teams to defend children’s rights in Arizona’s juvenile court through our pro bono Children’s Law Clinic, litigate civil rights cases nationally, and develop impactful legislation for Arizona and beyond. The Center for the Rights of Abused Children law clerks work with our associates to research federal and state child welfare laws, draft pleadings and memos, conduct policy research, participate in legal trainings, and attend court hearings and legislative debates when possible.
Our clerkship program offerings vary by semester.
Summer: Paid law clerk opportunities for second and third year students.
