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
For over 50 years, Rising for Justice (formerly Law Students in Court) has provided legal services to individuals who are in grave jeopardy, and provided law students with the experience of practicing law to better enable them to be life-long advocates for justice.
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.
