hi folks...just got an announcement about this today. it gives you an example of the kind of job you might be qualified for if, for instance, you took Professor Colker's ADA class and worked independently with her and became someone of an expert in laws related to the ADA. actually, there are lots of legal advocacy groups that hire their own attorneys...other examples are Equal Justice Foundation, Foundation for Individual Rights, ACLU, etc.

DISABILITY RIGHTS STAFF ATTORNEY POSITION
Disability Law & Advocacy Center of Tennessee (DLAC) is a private nonprofit agency which is designated as the protection and advocacy system for Tennessee. DLAC is currently accepting applications for a staff attorney to work primarily in its employment law area which includes employment discrimination and vocational rehabilitation.
Licensed Tennessee attorneys with strong written and oral communication skills who want an opportunity to work on issues which significantly impact people with disabilities are encouraged to apply. Although DLAC would prefer to receive applications from attorneys with employment and/or disability law experience, the agency is willing to consider applications from less experienced attorneys who have engaged in activities that demonstrate a strong interest in disability rights issues.
