Description: Since 1992, Equal Justice Works has provided paid post-graduate public interest fellowships to law school graduates to provide legal assistance to underserved populations and causes. Equal Justice Works Fellows work on a range of issues, including domestic violence, homelessness, community economic development, immigration, civil rights, juvenile justice, access to health care, consumer fraud, and environmental justice. Through these fellowships, hundreds of new lawyers have been able to provide critical legal assistance to underserved communities and have gone on to become leaders in the public interest arena. Michigan Law alums who are current and former EJW fellows are developing medical-legal partnerships in West Los Angeles to provide assistance to homeless veterans, representing students in the Mississippi public school system, and assisting undocumented LGBTQ survivors of violence in New York City, among many other areas of work. 2Ls and soon-to-be-clerking 3Ls, come learn about the Equal Justice Works Fellowships program with Mia Sussman (MLaw alum and Director of Fellowships at Equal Justice Works)! 1Ls welcome too!

Please RSVP in Symplicity via the Events tab for the virtual lunch talk and 2Ls and 3Ls should sign up in Symplicity via the Events tab for open slots to meet one-on-one virtually with Mia. Come with questions!
