The mission of Equal Justice Works is to create a just society by mobilizing the next generation of lawyers committed to equal justice. We provide leadership to ensure a sustainable pipeline of talented and trained lawyers are involved in public service. Equal Justice Works provides a continuum of programs that begin with incoming law school students and extend into later careers in the profession. We provide the nation’s leading public interest law fellowship program and offer more postgraduate, full-time legal positions in public service than any other organization.
Helping Lawyers Help Community
Equal Justice Works’ Board of Directors is a diverse group comprised of national leaders from law firms, law schools, corporate legal departments, and the public interest sector. Committed to enabling the next generation of great lawyers to serve vulnerable communities and causes, our Board is dedicated to ensuring all individuals have access to equal justice.
The National Advisory Committee (NAC) is comprised of students and professionals from Equal Justice Works member law schools who provide guidance and advice to the organization and help us achieve our goal of expanding public interest opportunities for law students and lawyers.
