Each year, the Equal Justice Works National Advisory Committee presents eight law students throughout the country with a Regional Public Interest Award. Chosen for their innovation, impact, and commitment to public interest law, each of the students selected is recognized for providing extraordinary service through clinics, volunteer work, internships, and more. Recipients of the Regional Public Interest Awards will receive a $250 cash prize and commemorative plaque. Applications are open each February through mid-March.

Providing legal services to underprivileged populations is some of the most important legal work one can do. I’m eager to be a part of it.
