Equal Justice Works Fellowship

Since 1999, the CBF has sponsored Equal Justice Works fellowships. Equal Justice Works is a national organization that gives recent law graduates the opportunity to pursue two-year paid fellowships at a wide variety of legal aid and public interest law organizations throughout the country. The two-year fellowships offer salary and generous loan repayment assistance, a national training and leadership development program and other forms of support during the term of the fellowship, while also linking the fellows into a growing national network of Equal Justice Works Fellows working on other legal aid and public interest law projects throughout the country.

Watch this Equal Justice Works video highlighting a past CBF-sponsored Equal Justice Works Fellow describing her innovative project.
