Hey Law Students! Apply for a 2023 Regional Public Interest Award

/ Blog Post

Equal Justice Works is now accepting applications for its 2023 Regional Public Interest Award. Each year, our National Advisory Committee presents eight law students throughout the country with a Regional Public Interest Award. Recipients are chosen for their innovation, impact, and commitment to public interest law, including their extraordinary service through clinics, volunteer work, internships, and more. All Regional Public Interest Award recipients receive a $250 cash prize and commemorative plaque.

To apply for a Regional Public Interest Award, please complete this application by April 10. As a part of your application, you’ll be asked to provide a personal statement describing your commitment to public interest law. Recipients of this year’s award will be notified on April 30.

If you have any questions about the Regional Public Interest Awards, or if you would like to nominate an extraordinary public interest law student for the award in your region, please email our team at [email protected].

Applications for the 2023 Regional Public Interest Awards are now closed.
