For Your Information...

In 2009, Equal Justice America launched its Pennsylvanians 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 Pennsylvania legal aid organizations.

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

Please click the links below to read letters from the students and/or their supervisors on their EJA Fellowship experiences.
