Access to Justice Institute

As a home for pro bono, public interest, and social justice activities, the Access to Justice Institute (ATJI) prepares students for a lifetime in law in furtherance of social justice. Through collaborative student, school, and community partnerships, ATJI:

  • Connects the law school to opportunities to engage with underserved and marginalized communities and use the law as a means to effect social change (Visit Do Pro Bono)
  • Bridges academics and action (Visit Explore Social Justice)
  • Strengthens students' legal skills and leadership capacities (Vist Explore Social Justice and Do Pro Bono)
  • Builds and supports an equal justice-minded community within the law school and beyond (Visit Pursue Public Interest)

For the most current information on events and pro bono and volunteer opportunities, please visit the Access to Justice Institute's Pro Bono Portal and find us on Facebook!

Our deepest thanks and congratulations to the 274 students who took the Pro Bono Pledge this year! In 2014-15 alone, students reported over 16,200 hours of legal pro bono and community volunteer activity. A list of graduating students recognized as Pro Bono Pledge Awardees can be found here.
