The Economic Justice Institute is home to UW Law School’s five civil, anti-poverty clinical programs.
At EJI, our mission is both to educate law students through teaching, supervision and reflection, and to enable more people — especially those who can’t afford to hire lawyers — to access civil justice. Students gain real-world legal experience, empowering clients and the community through information, advocacy and methods of alternative dispute resolution.
