Our staff is ably assisted by a core of dedicated interns and talented volunteers who provide many hundreds of hours of service contributing to the important work of Access Justice℠.
Access Justice (AJ), is a start-up nonprofit public interest law firm, which provides a wide range of quality and affordable legal services to persons and small businesses of limited means—often referred to as “ordinary,” working class people. In order to fulfill our mission and serve the public interest we continually seek competent and professional volunteers to assist in launching this exciting effort (which currently operates in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and hopes to eventually expand statewide and nationwide).
Volunteers must have strong academic credentials and, preferably, prior practical experience.
