For Your Information…

 

The following Rutgers University School of Law students have received fellowships from Equal Justice America.  These fellowships are made possible by contributions from Rutgers University law alumni.   With continued support from the alumni, we look forward to putting many more Rutgers 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.)
