About the Equal Justice Project

In the centennial anniversary year of the AALS, the issue of equal justice is a fitting theme for the initiative of AALS President, Professor Elliott Milstein of American University's Washington College of Law. In creating the AALS Equal Justice Project, with a grant from the Open Society Institute, President Milstein observed in his Presidential Address at the AALS Annual Meeting that "working to promote justice, to ensure that our legal system operates fairly, is a remarkably fulfilling and rewarding enterprise. . . . I hope this initiative will stimulate the production of scholarship, promote the creation of curricular materials, and encourage the formation of actual experimental models, all directed to renewing this society's ideal of providing equal justice to all." The 19 AALS Equal Justice Colloquia, which will be held around the country during the 2000-01 academic year, are designed to create cutting-edge opportunities for law schools, working in conjunction with the equal justice community, to lend their unique talents in the critical quest for equal justice in our current legal systems and communities.
