Equal Justice Works collaborates with law schools to create compelling public interest programs on campuses across the country.

We want all students to benefit from a public interest experience and make a connection between law school and equal justice that becomes a lifelong commitment to justice.

We are a leader in advocating for programs that reduce the educational debt barrier for lawyers committed to public service careers, and provide expertise and resources on loan repayment and debt relief programs to both students and law school advisers.

PROGRAMS

Student Debt Relief

High student debt burdens prevent many from considering public service careers. Equal Justice Works offers user-friendly information and resources on student debt relief programs.

AmeriCorps JD

The Equal Justice Works AmeriCorps JD program provides law students with the opportunity to deliver critically needed legal assistance in low-income and underserved communities across the country.
