Equal Justice Works AmeriCorps Legal Fellowships
The Equal Justice Works AmeriCorps Legal Fellowship Program is one of the most productive and highly regarded national service programs in the country. Our AmeriCorps Legal Fellows make a lasting impact on the communities they serve by expanding the legal resources in low-income and underserved communities and facilitating pro bono opportunities.
MORE ABOUT THIS PROGRAM
Equal Justice Works is putting “boots on the ground” and responding to the growing crisis of homeless veterans.
Supported by the Corporation for National and Community Service, the Equal Justice Works AmeriCorps Legal Fellowship program was created in 1993 to address the gaps in the legal aid community through pro bono management and direct representation. Our AmeriCorps Legal Fellows provide legal services to thousands of people across the country each year. Starting in August 2014, AmeriCorps Legal Fellows will focus exclusively on addressing employment issues, serving the legal needs of veterans and providing disaster relief.
