Equal Access to Justice Committee

The DAYL Equal Access to Justice (“EAJ”) Committee  focuses on providing increased access to the Dallas Courts for traditionally disadvantaged segments of our community. In addition to its own projects, the EAJ Committee also works on projects with the Dallas Volunteer Attorney Program and the Dallas Bar Association. The committee organizes a wine tasting each year that benefits the Dallas Volunteer Attorney Program. In addition, the committee annually recognizes a young lawyer with the organization’s Young Lawyer Pro Bono Service Award.


The committee typically meets once a month until the Wine Tasting, whch is usually held in June. For information on the next meeting or to learn more about getting involved, please email one of the co-chairs listed below or reach out to Cherie Harris.
