About EJU

Equal Justice University (EJU) is the annual gathering of approximately 200 lawyers, advocates, social worker professionals, and pro bono attorneys involved in providing civil legal assistance across Tennessee. EJU provides a unique opportunity for this community to gain up to 15 hours of Continuing Legal Education credit (CLEs/CEUs) as well as networking through task force meetings and social functions. EJU also provides dynamic speakers that express the value in being a part of the access to justice community. The EJU experience not only renews the civil legal service community’s commitment to equal access to justice in Tennessee; it also introduces new pro bono lawyers, community advocates, and law students to this important mission.

The 2016 Equal Justice University Conference takes place Wednesday, August 31 - Friday, September 2, 2016 at the Embassy Suites in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
