The New Jersey attorney general’s office announced Tuesday it has decided to offer a new program for one of the state’s needy groups: lawyers in need of work.

As the Newark Star Ledger reported Wednesday, state Attorney General Anne Milgram’s new Volunteer Associates in Public Service Program will offer unemployed lawyers the option of working 20-plus hours a week for a minimum of three months. More than 400 New Jersey lawyers had filed for unemployment by the end of June, the Star Ledger reports.
