Equal Justice Works, the nation’s largest facilitator of opportunities in public interest law, today announced the newest members of its National Advisory Committee.
Formed in 2003, the National Advisory Committee (NAC) is a diverse group of law students and law school professionals who serve as Equal Justice Works ambassadors within the law school and legal services communities. NAC members extend the reach of Equal Justice Works initiatives by providing leadership, feedback, and outreach assistance to support the organization’s mission to create opportunities for lawyers to transform their passion for public service into a lifelong commitment to equal justice.
“These new National Advisory Committee members will provide insight to how Equal Justice Works can best serve law students and the communities supporting them,” said Aoife Delargy Lowe, vice president of law school engagement & advocacy at Equal Justice Works. “We are thrilled to welcome each of these new members to our NAC.”

This year, the Committee welcomes four law students and four law school professionals. The newest members of the 2023-2025 National Advisory Committee include:
