University of Minnesota Law School
The following University of Minnesota Law School students have received fellowships from Equal Justice America. These fellowships are made possible by contributions from University of Minnesota Law School alumni. With continued support from the alumni, we look forward to putting many more University of Minnesota law students to work providing vitally needed legal assistance to the poor.
(Equal Justice America is an independent non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation unaffiliated with any law school.)

“Given my relocation expenses for the summer and the high cost of renting and living in the Boston area, I do not believe I would have been able to serve underrepresented, low-income clients and develop my own skills in this summer opportunity [at the Center for Health Law Policy and Innovation of Harvard Law School], if it were not for Equal Justice America’s generous support. I am grateful for and humbled by Equal Justice America’s choice to support my commitment to the public interest, and I have no doubt that it was a worthwhile investment.” – Luke Haqq, University of Minnesota Law School, EJA Summer Fellow 2016
