The Bet Tzedek

The Bet Tzedek (Hebrew for "The House of Justice") opened its doors 35 years ago as a one-night-a-week storefront community law office staffed by volunteers.

Today, Bet Tzedek is one of the nation’s premier legal services organizations, providing free assistance to more than 10,000 people of every racial and religious background at its headquarters in the Fairfax area and its office in North Hollywood and at more than 30 senior centers throughout Los Angeles County. With a dedicated staff of over 60 and more than 1,000 active volunteers, Bet Tzedek makes a crucial difference in the lives of the most vulnerable members of the community.

Fall, Winter and Spring College Interns, Pre-Law Students

Bet Tzedek offers volunteer opportunities to college students, graduates, and other professionals interested in pursuing a law career but who have not entered law school.

Internship/Volunteer Opportunities

Intern as an Intake Assistant

One of the most important roles at Bet Tzedek, intake assistants help determine whether clients are eligible for our services and refer ineligible clients to other organizations.  Learn more about becoming an Intake Assistant. 

Provide Translation Services

We frequently need translation services, whether helping a client prepare for a hearing or translating a document.  Join our list of on-call translators and we will contact you when translation needs arise.  Some helpful language abilities include (but are not limited to) Spanish, Russian and Thai.

Development and Marketing Interns 

Colleges may work as Development and Marketing Interns.   With mentorship from the Development Department, interns assist with donor cultivation, focused appeals, special events, funding research and analysis, and the development of agency marketing and communications packages.
