Access to Justice Institute

As a home for pro bono, public interest, and social justice activities, the Access to Justice Institute (ATJI) prepares students for a lifetime in law in furtherance of social justice. Through collaborative student, school, and community partnerships, ATJI:

  • Offers opportunities to engage with underserved and marginalized communities and to use the law as a means to effect social change
  • Supports students and alumni exploring or pursuing public interest careers and learning opportunities
  • Builds a community of equal justice-minded advocates and leaders within the law school and beyond 

The Access to Justice Institute is not a direct legal services provider. For help in finding a lawyer, visit or call 2-1-1 if you are inside of King County. If you are outside of King County, call Coordinated Legal Educational Advice Referral (CLEAR) at 1-888-201-1014.
