Who We Are
Athens Access to Justice Initiative (AATJI) is a group of legal volunteers who know how hard it can be for regular people to use the court system.
Our mission is to help Athens-Clarke County residents get the best possible results, even without a lawyer. We focus on helping Athenians navigate the civil court system by providing legal information and sponsoring legal events. Our goal is access to justice for everyone
What We Do
Athens Access to Justice Initiative organizes free pop-up clinics to give members of the community an opportunity to meet with volunteer attorneys. Attorneys are licensed in the state of Georgia and can take questions related to family law, evictions, unemployment benefits, and other civil legal questions. No appointment is necessary!
