Equal Justice University (EJU) is a statewide, annual conference focusing on key public interest law and professionalism topics, providing education and fellowship to Tennessee’s equal justice community. Presenters include a diverse group of local and national experts, offering engaging educational opportunities for conference attendees to earn much of their annual continuing CLE credit.
Leadership and Networking
EJU strengthens Tennessee's equal justice network by bringing together members of the judiciary, legal aid and pro bono lawyers, social workers and other professionals for education, relationship building and virtual networking through online activities. This year, we’ll be using gamification in a creative way to connect with each other during our virtual conference.
Access to Justice Awards
Three prestigious awards are presented during the conference. The Janice M. Holder Award recognizes an individual who has made significant contributions to expanding Access to Justice in Tennessee. The B. Riney Green Award recognizes a professional who promotes inter-program cooperation and strengthens access to justice across the state. The New Advocate of the Year Award recognizes creative, effective advocacy by an attorney or paralegal who has worked in legal aid for five years or less.
