The articulated goals of the Equal Justice Project are as follows:

1. To develop models that can be used in different law school settings with various levels of resources to encourage teaching, scholarship, and service activities that support the provision of legal services to underrepresented groups.

2. To stimulate throughout the entire law school - in nonclinical courses, library programs, and pro bono projects, among others - cross-cutting interest in and commitment to the provision of legal services to underserved individuals, groups, and communities.

3. To establish formal relationships between law schools and equal justice communities aimed at promoting on-going support for the provision of legal services to underserved individuals, groups, and communities.

4. To evaluate the effectiveness of the variety of models and approaches that emerge from the Project with the goal of creating sustained commitments to equal justice education, scholarship, and work in law schools on both the national and local levels.

5. To encourage collaboration among law schools and their faculties in addressing the pressing issues and themes that will be considered in the Colloquia.
