SCLC is searching for an outstanding attorney to serve as the directing attorney of the Social Security Advocacy Project (SSAP). The directing attorney is responsible for overseeing and managing SSAP. This is a full-time attorney position starting immediately. This position requires the ability to travel to client meetings, community events, and hearings, and may require some work on nights or weekends.
