ATJI connects students to a range of public interest and social justice opportunities happening out in the community and also helps to host what we call "Partnership Projects." These are volunteer and pro bono projects that are sponsored by ATJI in conjunction with a community partner. Each Partnership Project is unique but typically offers students the benefit of ATJI staff support as well as expertise or resources from a legal aid or community organization. Current Partnership Projects include:
- Moderate Means Program: Partnership between the Washington State Bar Association and the three Washington law schools to increase access to civil legal services for individuals of moderate means who cannot afford to hire private attorneys.
- Foreclosure Mediation Outreach Program: Collaboration between ATJI and the Ronald A. Peterson Law Clinic's Predatory Lending Clinic, the Northwest Justice Project , Columbia Legal Services , Tacoma-Pierce County Volunteer Legal Services and other community partners assisting distressed homeowners.
- Seattle University Youth Initiative: Several projects, such as the Financial Literacy Project, Juvenile Justice Project, and Seattle Youth Traffic Court to help children and families in the local community succeed.
- WAACO Microenterprise Clinic: Collaboration with the Ronald A. Peterson Law Clinic's Microenterprise Clinic and Washington Attorneys Assisting Community Organizations (WAACO) to provide assistance to low-income microentrepreneurs and small businesses.
