For Your Information…

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