Equal Justice Foundation to hold annual benefit auction for student fellowships

The University of Georgia School of Law’s Equal Justice Foundation will host its 33rd annual benefit auction March 24 at 6:30 p.m. at The Foundry at Graduate Athens. The evening will include both a silent and live auction, which will begin at 8 p.m.

Proceeds from the event will go toward EJF summer fellowships, which help support School of Law students working in summer public interest positions for little or no compensation. The event is open free to the public.

Items and packages collected for this year’s auction include gift cards to popular Athens restaurants and shops, meals at Five & Ten and The National, private hand-dipped ice cream making lessons, a hog roast, group rounds of golf and ballroom dance lessons as well as other packages and gift certificates.

The Equal Justice Foundation is a student-run organization devoted to the promotion of public interest law. Learn more at

The auction is being held in conjunction with the School of Law’s annual Alumni/Alumnae Weekend, which will include the Distinguished Service Scroll Awards Luncheon recognizing alumnus Don L. Waters, alumna Sally Q. Yates and faculty member Larry D. Thompson as well as continuing legal education and networking opportunities.
