The 2006 Equal Justice Works Summer Corps applications will be available online (www.equaljusticeworks.org) from noon EST on March 22 until 5 p.m. on April 5. The Summer Corps program supports law students around the country who are working to expand the delivery of legal services to those who need it most. Summer Corps is an AmeriCorps-funded program that provides 315 law students with the opportunity to earn a $1000 education award voucher for dedicating their summer to a qualifying legal internship at a non-profit, public interest organization of your choice. In response to the devastation caused by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, EJW is committed to setting aside 65 Summer Corps slots for law students who are providing disaster-related legal services in the Gulf Coast region. Students are eligible for these slots if the primary purpose of their internships is to assist hurricane victims or evacuees in Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi or Texas.
