Student Position: Client Demographics/Client Service Delivery Matrix

Posted: 9/2/2018 (Employment)

The Washington State Office of Civil Legal Aid (OCLA) is an independent judicial branch agency that manages and oversees legislative and other public investments in the system that provides legal aid services to low-income people in Washington state. OCLA seeks to engage a qualified undergraduate or graduate student to help update the Client Demographics/Client Service Delivery Matrix used to plan and monitor the deployment of legal aid staff and pro bono capacity throughout Washington State. The work involves updating census-based information to reflect the most recent information from the 1-YR 2016 American Community Survey on a county-by-county and regional basis. This project offers the student a hands-on opportunity to gain familiarity with American Fact Finder and other US Census tools, find and select census data and see how such data is used to ensure equity of geographic access to civil legal aid services for low-income people in Washington State. Target Completion Date: November 15, 2018.  OCLA will pay $40/hr. for work performed on this project up to a maximum of $800 (20 hours).
