Welcome to The Equal Justice Works Guide to Law Schools*

Not sure if you’re in the right place?

If you are thinking of going to law school or you are currently enrolled and seeking inspiration for new public interest initiatives at your school, you are definitely in the right place - and we’re glad you’re here. Equal Justice Works created The Guide because we believe there is a void in existing commercial law school resource guides and rankings and because we recognize that there is no one-size-fits-all answer to what quality legal education means for each student. With this in mind, The Guide is designed to help you discover which schools are the best fit for you by providing side-by-side comparisons of financial aid and affordability factors, faculty engagement, student leadership, the range of clinical, externship and pro bono opportunities, and curricular and co-curricular offerings in specific issue areas.

The Guide can help you find schools that offer:

  • Public interest scholarships
  • Pro bono programs
  • Hands-on opportunities to work with faculty and clients
  • Public interest field placements (externships)
  • Career advisors specializing in public service job searches and professional development
  • Public interest journals, law reviews and other publications
  • Active public interest student groups
  • Loan Repayment Assistance Programs (LRAP) to help reduce graduate debt
  • Courses and other opportunities to explore a wide range of public interest issues

More than 150 schools have participated in The Guide, and more will be added in the future.
Enter The Guide and explore the many opportunities they have to offer and find the school that is perfect for you!
