For Your Information...

In 2008, Equal Justice America launched its Louisiana for Equal Justice campaign to increase legal services to the poor by creating additional Law Student Fellowships in the state, putting more law students to work with Louisiana legal aid organizations.

The following law students have received Equal Justice America Fellowships since our launch of Louisiana for Equal Justice.  Your support will help us expand our program to put more law students to work in Louisiana on behalf of the poor.   We need your help!
