Florida for Equal Justice

Equal Justice America’s newest addition to our State Initiatives program is our Florida for Equal Justice campaign. Your support will help us increase legal services to the poor by creating additional Law Student Fellowships in the state, putting more law students to work with Florida legal aid organizations.

Funding for EJA Fellowships for Ave Maria School of Law, Barry University, Florida A&M University, Florida Coastal, University of Florida, Florida International University, Florida State University, Nova Southeastern University, St. Thomas University and Stetson University law students derive from our Florida for Equal Justice campaign. (To be eligible for an EJA Fellowship, students from these schools must find placements with legal aid organizations in Florida.)

EJA launched our Florida for Equal Justice campaign this year. Please help us put more law students to work in Florida on behalf of the poor.

We need your help!

(Equal Justice America is an independent non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation unaffiliated with any law school.)
