The Justice Catalyst activates path-breaking approaches to social justice lawyering and affirmative litigation that have real-world impact and improve the lives of the low-wage workers, the poor, and the marginalized. Towards this end, the Catalyst also launches and supports early-stage projects with existing public interest organizations or public agencies that employ or wish to adopt innovative approaches or legal strategies to address social problems through:
• Administering a fellowship program;
• Partnering with existing public interest organizations;
• Organizing convenings;
• Preparing educational material; and,
• Supporting socially responsible approaches to lawyering.
