Connect With Our Alumni Network

After successfully completing your commitment as an Equal Justice Works Fellow, you become an alum of the organization. You’ll be joining a network of over 2,000 passionate public interest lawyers continuing to work as key contributors to our shared vision of achieving our nation’s promise of equal justice for all.

Lifelong Leadership

Once you become an alum of Equal Justice Works, you’ll bring an invaluable perspective to any career field.

Informed and inspired by their clients, more than 85% of alumni continue to work still in public service positions, continuing to change systems, advocate for reform, and drive innovation far beyond their Equal Justice Works commitments. Our alumni are executive directors, supervising attorneys, law school professors, and more. No matter what path you choose, you will have an ever-expanding network of colleagues to support and lead alongside you. Read our Alumni Engagement Program Overview here.

Opportunities for Alumni

As alumni, you are uniquely positioned to help current Fellows have the same opportunities and positive experiences that you did. You can participate in our Class Announcement Tweet Storm, volunteer to review Fellow applications, or join us as a speaker or presenter at one of our events.

You can also participate in a variety of career development opportunities sponsored by Equal Justice Works and further engage with your fellow alumni through various networking and social events that we host throughout the year.
