National Advisory Committee

Do you wish to expand public interest opportunities on law campuses across the country? Join the Equal Justice Works National Advisory Committee to help bridge the gap between law school and the public interest field.

The National Advisory Committee (NAC) is made up of eight law students and eight law school professionals who conduct outreach and provide feedback and advice on our programs and initiatives. NAC Members serve two-year staggered terms and new members are selected each spring.

As a NAC member, you will be responsible for:

  • Building relationships with law students and law school professionals within your assigned region
  • Promoting public interest opportunities and resources
  • Visiting and speaking at regional law schools
  • Reporting back to Equal Justice Works on public interest law issues, news, and events
  • Assisting with the annual Conference and Career Fair held every October held in Washington, D.C.
  • Assisting with the design, implementation and evaluation of select initiatives including the Student Representative program and the Regional Public Interest Awards

Interested applicants must be currently enrolled at an Equal Justice Works Member Law School that has an open position on the NAC. Applications for the 2019-2021 term open spring of 2018.

To me, that’s what public interest law is all about: Giving voice to the people and places that are oppressed, silenced, and forgotten and finding creative solutions that help not just them, but all of us.
