In 2008, Equal Justice America launched its Washington, DC 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 DC legal aid organizations.
Funding for EJA Fellowships for George Mason University*, Howard University and the University of the District of Columbia law students derive from our Washington, DC for Equal Justice campaign. (To be eligible for an EJA Fellowship, students from these schools must find placements with legal aid organizations in Washington, DC.)
The following law students received Equal Justice America Fellowships since our launch of Washington, DC for Equal Justice. Your support will help us expand our program to put more law students to work in DC on behalf of the poor.
(Equal Justice America is an independent non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation unaffiliated with any law school.)
