If you will be doing public interest legal work this summer, either for a nonprofit organization or qualifying public defender program, you may be interested in applying for the Equal Justice Works Summer Corps program. Summer Corps is an AmeriCorps-funded program that provides hundreds of law students each year with the opportunity to dedicate their summer to public service working on a qualifying legal project at a nonprofit public interest organization. If accepted to the Summer Corps program, you will receive an education award voucher worth $1000 after completing the requisite 300 hours of service.
The application period is short! Applications are open April 1 through April 16, and applicants will receive notification of their acceptance by the end of April. The S.J. Quinney College of Law is a member law school of Equal Justice Works, so our students are eligible to apply for the Summer Corps program.
