More about Equal Justice Works Fellowships

Equal Justice Works Fellows have represented thousands of adults, children and families in need in communities across the country. Fellows design unique projects that serve and address a range of legal issues including domestic violence, homelessness, community economic development, immigration, civil rights, juvenile justice, employment rights, health care, consumer fraud, and environmental justice.  Equal Justice Works then matches the Fellow with sponsors to support their projects.

Our Fellowship provides a strong foundation on which to build a public interest career, and many of our Fellows have gone on to become public interest law leaders, whether they continue to work in the nonprofit arena or become pro bono advocates in the private bar. Some of our most notable alumni include civil rights advocate  Shannon Minter, 2010 CNN Hero Wynnona Ward and internet free speech pioneer Kevin Bankston
