Equal Justice Foundation- WCL

Equal Justice Foundation- WCL The Washington College of Law Equal Justice Foundation (EJF) is a student-run organization dedicated to a more just society through the practice of law.

EJF aims to support public interest lawyering and serve underrepresented communities. Established at American University, Washington College of Law in 1989, EJF is a non-profit, student-run organization. Throughout the school year, EJF raises money and collects donations from students, faculty, staff, and the business community to fund stipends for WCL students who have secured positions with public interest organizations and demonstrated a committment to the Equal Justice Foundation. All proceeds are directly distributed to WCL students; no money is used for overhead.

Mission: The Washington College of Law Equal Justice Foundation (EJF) is a student-run organization dedicated to the public interest and a more just society through the practice of law. EJF aims to close the justice gap through the provision of legal services to marginalized communities, support public interest students on campus, and promote social justice lawyering. In part, EJF raises funds to provide stipends for WCL students who take unpaid summer internships with public interest legal organizations in the United States and abroad.

Not in DC? No problem! We are bringing IMBY to you this year!

The In My Backyard (IMBY) week of service will take place between Monday, August 10, and Friday, August 14, 2020. Instead of a single day of service in DC to kick off fall orientation, IMBY 2020 will be held virtually over the course of an entire week, and volunteers can pick a day to serve their own communities in-person or volunteer for an organization virtually.
