  • ·       Takes appropriate steps to improve any deficiencies in performance.
  • ·       Review, in coordination with the Assistant Managing Attorney and Lead Screeners, all case notes of new screeners.
  • ·       Oversee implementation of NJP eligibility and case priority assessments by the non-lawyer screeners at intake stage. 
  • ·       Review information on callers who screeners determine to be outside of NJP case acceptance guidelines and follow up as needed to provide referrals, publications and/or brief legal advice.
  • ·       Answer questions during intake from Lead Screeners regarding priorities, types of legal issues and other eligibility rules. 
  • ·       Manage calls where the caller has requested to speak to a supervisor or when a screener requests that a call be handled by a supervisor.
  • ·       Handle calls where a caller has a non-priority issue but has an emergency (hearing or deadline within one week) on a case-by-case basis.
  • ·       Determine whether a conflict of interest exists in cases identified by the screeners and make arrangements for alternative assistance where a conflict is exists.
  • ·       Assure compliance with policies of the Northwest Justice Project, Legal Services Corporation, Office of Civil Legal Aid, Rules of Professional Conduct and other requirements as applicable.
  • ·       Provide coverage for the Lead Screeners where and when needed to ensure smooth operation of the Screening Unit.
