For Your Information…

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