The Victim Rights Law Center is leading a new response to sexual violence. As a VRLC intern or volunteer, you will make a difference in the lives of rape and sexual assault victims and help to rebuild their lives. Our volunteers share our commitment to end sexual violence.

Pro Bono Attorney Program

Our pro bono attorney program pairs rape and sexual assault victims with VRLC-trained volunteer attorneys and paraprofessionals who help give them a voice in the legal system. Pro bono attorneys also write amicus briefs, help draft legislation, conduct legal research, and provide other assistance that helps improve systemic response to sexual violence, but does not involve working directly with sexual assault survivors. If you are interested or have questions about our pro bono attorney program, you can read more on our For Pro Bono Attorneys page or contact us.

Shining Star Gala 

The Shining Star Gala, which occurs annually in the fall, is planned by the all-volunteer Shining Star Gala Committee. It is the VRLC’s only annual fundraiser and it is so successful thanks to the help of generous volunteers. If you are interested in developing relationships for the VRLC, fundraising, selling tickets, assisting with the auction, or event planning, please contact us.


The VRLC often has internship opportunities for law students. Please contact our Massachusetts intern coordinator and/or Oregon intern coordinator to inquire about available law school internship opportunities at the VRLC. Click here for information on applying for future law school internships.

Leadership Opportunities

The VRLC’s Board of Directors is a dedicated group of professionals committed to the mission of the organization. New members are typically recruited for this role.

The Young Leadership Council will launch in early 2020 for young professionals who are interested in spreading our mission, supporting our work, and planning fundraising events on behalf of the VRLC.

The VRLC is also actively recruiting volunteers for assistance in Marketing and Graphic Design work.
