For Your Information…

The following DePaul University College of Law students have received fellowships from Equal Justice America. These fellowships are made possible by contributions from DePaul law alumni. With continued support from the alumni, we look forward to putting many more DePaul law students to work providing vitally needed legal assistance to the poor. We need your help!

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