Who we are.


Equal Justice America is an independent non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation established in 1993. EJA has become a national leader in providing opportunities for law students to work with organizations that deliver civil legal services to those most in need. Our efforts expose a new generation of future lawyers to the urgency of pro bono assistance to our most vulnerable citizens. Students at more than 80 law schools now have the opportunity to take part in the Equal Justice America Fellowship Program.
