Equal Justice Works

Helping Lawyers Help Community

We believe that the poorest and most vulnerable among us deserve the same access to justice and quality legal representation as more fortunate citizens. Founded by law students in 1986, Equal Justice Works is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a just society by mobilizing the next generation of lawyers committed to equal justice. We work to provide public interest opportunities for law students and lawyers and to reduce the financial barriers preventing many from pursuing public service careers.
