Legal Aid

The Project

The Hawaii State Courts are a great place to get an introduction to the legal system. We work in courts in several different levels of the judiciary including county and state positions. As well as performing in-court duties, we have options to work outside of or alongside the courts supporting the community in legal matters.

There is some flexibility to combine in job duties and we will match your skill set to the options available.
