If you work at Georgia Legal Services, you belong to a team of lawyers on the frontlines of rural poverty to make life-changing differences in our clients’ lives.
Our attorneys help survivors of family violence get the protection of a court order and critical “safety net” benefits to achieve independence from the abuser. We fight to keep children in school when school discipline is unfair. It’s often the poorest individuals who are victims of exploitation; we work to protect their much-needed earnings. Our Farmworker Rights Division lawyers take on some of the state’s largest agricultural companies, holding them accountable for labor violations.
Attorneys at Georgia Legal Services also spur broader, systemic change. Our advocacy teams focus on racial inequity, consumer and housing rights, access to education, and more. As a lawyer at GLSP, you will circuit ride to counties where access to justice is nearly non-existent—some where there are no lawyers, judges, or courts at all.
We have great benefits, including a generous loan repayment program that eases the burden of law school debt.
Our mission says it all: we provide access to justice and opportunities out of poverty. Consider Georgia Legal Services and the opportunity to change the lives of people who need it most.

GLSP has ten offices throughout the state, each with a rich civil rights history—like in Macon, where native Otis Redding’s performances brought white and black people together, or Brunswick, where local leaders like Rev. Julius Ceasar Hope expedited racial integration, or Albany, where Martin Luther King, Jr. made national headlines among the 250 protesters jailed for advocating black voter rights.
