In 2014, Equal Justice America launched its North Carolina 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 North Carolina legal aid organizations.
Funding for EJA Fellowships for Campbell University, Elon University, University of North Carolina, North Carolina Central University and Wake Forest University law students derive from our North Carolina for Equal Justice campaign. (To be eligible for an EJA Fellowship, students from these schools must find placements with legal aid organizations in North Carolina.)
The following law students have received Equal Justice America Fellowships since our launch of North Carolina for Equal Justice. Your support will help us expand our program to put more law students to work in North Carolina on behalf of the poor.
(Equal Justice America is an independent non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation unaffiliated with any law school.)
