Description

Make a difference for low-income Montanans and learn about the legal system as a member of Justice for Montanans serving with the Montana Supreme Court’s Self-Help Law Centers. Members of the public can go to the centers during designated hours to find legal information; download, print and fill out legal forms; get referrals to and applications for appropriate legal services or pro bono programs; and get information about community service agencies that may be able to assist with underlying non-legal issues. The member may travel to designated sites within their assigned service areas to provide one-on-one assistance to self-represented litigants and to provide remote assistance via telephone, video-conferences or online “chat” features. The member does not provide legal advice but only legal information to the customers. Members work one-on-one with people who will be representing themselves in court to make sure they have accurate and complete paperwork and have a better chance to navigate the court system. Positions are available at Self Help Law Centers in Billings, Bozeman, and two positions in Great Falls.
