About EJF

Equal Justice Foundation (EJF) is a student group dedicated to fundraising to support students engaged in public interest and government work for the summer. In 1982, EJF awarded its first three summer fellowships to students working without pay for public interest organizations. With the assistance and support of the administration and the greater law school community, our program has grown tremendously since then.  Georgetown Law now supports the highest number students of any law school in the country, providing nearly 500 fellowships this past summer.

FAQ

How do I receive funding for my public interest summer?
Please read the instructions from OPICS.


What is the EJF Auction?
The Auction is our centerpiece event of the year! The auction will take place on January 29, 2015, and will have an Roaring '20s theme. There will be many exciting prizes to bid on and more are being donated every day.

How do I complete my two volunteer hours?
There are many different ways to meet this obligation including tabling, baking, poster making, set-up and clean-up for the Live Auction, and more. Everyone must spend one of their hours doing phone banking. To sign up, please go to the Westlaw TWEN site and enroll in the course "EJF." Go to "Sign-Up Sheets" and select something that interests you. EJF will regularly add new opportunities and will email to highlight them.
