Equal Justice Foundation

The Equal Justice Foundation (EJF) is a student-run organization that is dedicated to the principle that every lawyer has a responsibility to address the inequities within the legal system. The primary goal is to provide fellowships for first and second year law students who volunteer their services over the summer to social justice causes. Past recipients of EJF awards have provided vital legal services to disadvantaged communities and non-profit organizations all over the world.
