Equal Justice America has funding available for UT Law students who are working this summer with organizations that provide civil legal assistance to the poor.

Students should send an email to info@equaljusticeamerica.org that includes a cover letter describing their interest in and commitment to public interest law, a resume, and an employment confirmation letter.  Students should include in their cover letter if they have already been awarded any funding and if so, how much.  They should also let us know how much supplemental funding they are permitted to get.  Please mark the subject line of the email “UT Summer Fellowship Application”.

Equal Justice America is an independent nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation established in 1993. EJA has become a national leader in providing opportunities for law students to work with organizations that deliver civil legal services to those most in need. Their efforts expose a new generation of future lawyers to the urgency for pro bono assistance to our most vulnerable citizens. Students at more than 70 law schools now have the opportunity to take part in the Equal Justice America Fellowship Program.
