Alliance for Social Justice

 Mission Statement

The Gonzaga Alliance for Social Justice works to ensure that every Gonzaga Law student is familiar with, appreciates, and has an opportunity to participate in the work that is being done on behalf of low-income and underrepresented clients by students, faculty, and community legal providers.

The Alliance for Social Justice strives to connect public interest-oriented students with each other and with the legal aid and legal services community, encouraging innovative and sustainable relationships between them. The Alliance for Social Justice also works to ensure that every student understands the importance of public interest law, so that they might continue Gonzaga’s Jesuit mission for social justice throughout their legal career.
