In 2008, Equal Justice America launched its Louisiana for Equal Justice campaign to increase legal services to the poor by creating additional Law Student Fellowships in the state, putting more law students to work with Louisiana legal aid organizations.
Funding for EJA Fellowships for LSU, Loyola University of New Orleans, Southern University and Tulane law students derive from our Louisiana for Equal Justice campaign. (To be eligible for an EJA Fellowship, students from these schools must find placements with legal aid organizations in Louisiana.)
The following law students have received Equal Justice America Fellowships since our launch of Louisiana for Equal Justice. Your support will help us expand our program to put more law students to work in Louisiana on behalf of the poor.
(Equal Justice America is an independent non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation unaffiliated with any law school.)
