Equal Justice Foundation is a student-run organization devoted to the promotion of public interest law. EJF works to provide stipends for UGA law students who have chosen to work in unpaid, public interest positions over the summer. Public interest law is not a lucrative field, and students who pay the high cost of legal education need financial support. EJF’s mission is to:
- Raise money for stipends and distribute the funds to public interest law students in a fair manner,
- Provide networking opportunities for students interested in public interest law careers, and
- Promote the viability of public interest law careers at UGA by our fundraising efforts and supporting other public interest organizations at the University of Georgia School of Law.
