Expand Your Organization’s Mission in New & Meaningful Ways

Equal Justice Works facilitates opportunities for lawyers, law students, and community advocates to support and expand the work of legal services organizations across the nation. Through our Fellowship programs, we create additional full-time positions at legal services organizations for passionate public interest lawyers who can help foster innovation, build capacity, and support outreach efforts.

By hosting a Fellow or law student, your organization will join a community of legal services organizations on the frontlines of working toward equal justice. Host organizations range in size, scope of work, and mission focus, though each are committed to providing meaningful ways to increase equal access to justice for underserved communities.
