Access to Justice Fellows Program

Access to Justice Fellows Program, a project of the Massachusetts Access to Justice Commission and the Lawyers Clearinghouse, enables senior lawyers and retired judges to partner with nonprofit organizations, courts, and other public interest entities to increase equal justice for all.

By matching lawyers who are retired or transitioning toward retirement with groups that need their help, the program allows these lawyers to use their specialized skills and experience to do engaging pro bono work, remain active members of the legal community, and help people and groups in need.

Fellows devote 10-20 hours per week to their projects, and commit to work for one academic year, from September through June. Fellows come from diverse professional backgrounds and have had careers as judges, litigators, transactional attorneys, legal services attorneys, public servants, and public interest advocates.
