The Kent Justice Foundation (KJF) helps make public interest work possible. We work to raise financial support for deserving students who choose to serve for a summer at a not-for-profit legal organization or in the public sector. KJF is supported by the generosity of the Chicago-Kent community, and through fundraising events throughout the year. KJF also serves as a focal point and resource center for students interested in public interest law or volunteering.
Kent Justice Foundation is the public interest student organization of Chicago-Kent College of Law. Our mission is to enable Kent students to pursue unpaid summer internships in the public interest. Through our Summer Fellowship Program, we provide stipends of up to $5,000 to qualified candidates. To raise money for our fellowships, we host several fundraisers throughout the year, including bake sales, a wine event in the fall, and an auction in the spring.
Besides the Fellowship Program, KJF works to promote public interest law at Chicago-Kent through community service opportunities and campus speakers. Even if your future plans do not involve public interest law, KJF is a great way to get involved and give back to the community during your time at Chicago-Kent!
