Partnership Projects

ATJI connects students to public interest and social justice opportunities, which include Partnership Projects. Partnership Projects are developed and organized by ATJI in collaboration with a community partner to offer students a social justice opportunity that builds legal and leadership skills while helping to advance the community partner's equal justice work. Current Partnership Projects include:

  • Moderate Means Program: Through either a credit-bearing practicum during the school year or an unpaid summer internship, students conduct intakes of people of moderate means and refer them to attorneys willing to charge reduced fees.
  • Foreclosure Mediation Outreach Program: Through a credit-bearing practicum class and short-term volunteer opportunities during the academic year as well as an unpaid summer intership, students learn about the foreclosure process and remedies for foreclosure prevention including mortgage mediation. FMOP students work on mortgage mediation cases with the Northwest Justice Project and other local community organiziations and do legal education and outreach to distressed homeowners.
  • Seattle University Youth Initiative: Students can get involved with the larger university's Youth Initiative focused on the neighborhood surrounding SU. The Juvenile Justice Project and Seattle Youth Traffic Court help children and families in the local community succeed.
  • Wayfind Microenterprise Clinic: Collaboration with Wayfind to provide legal assistance to low-income microentrepreneurs.
