Our Fellows Serve Communities in Need Across the Country


Throughout our country, individuals and families face unfair barriers to accessing basic needs—such as housing, education, and healthcare—but rarely are these individuals able to exercise their rights and have their voices heard.

No matter the issue or community in need, the guidance of a lawyer often makes the critical difference.

Through our Fellowship opportunities, we mobilize lawyers to work at legal services organizations across our country, where they help build sustainable solutions and expand capacity to respond to the dire need for free legal support.

Our committed partners make our work possible. We rely on generous support from law firms, corporations, foundations, individual donors, and the government to help us build a community of lawyers committed to public service and equal justice.

Join us to mobilize more passionate public service leaders who will help fulfill our nation’s promise of equal justice for all.
