Over 50 years ago, a consortium of District of Columbia law schools, judges and advocates created the D.C. Law Students in Court program, which has grown into Rising for Justice.
Law Students in Court has become Rising for Justice
After 50 years of service in D.C., we have changed our name to Rising for Justice to better reflect our growing impact. Rising for Justice consists of three distinct but coordinated divisions; Law Students in Court Division, Legal Services Division and the Social Work Division.Learn more about our rebrand here.
To prevent injustices today, we represent individuals who are in grave legal jeopardy.
To build a better tomorrow, we teach law students to be life-long advocates for justice.
To ensure justice always, we innovate sustainable solutions to problems of justice and equity.
