We want to fill that gap between the citizens’ need for justice and our profession’s need for employment opportunity—in brief, to meet the need for justice with the need for opportunity.2016-2017 State Bar President Frank Stevenson

Our Mission

We expand access to justice for low- and moderate-income Texans by assisting new lawyers in establishing sustainable practices that serve this population.


Goals

  • To match new lawyers with an entrepreneurial focus with mentors who can assist them in building sustainable practices aimed at meeting the needs of low- and moderate-income Texans.
  • To establish a model and curriculum for similar incubator projects throughout Texas.

How it Works

TOJI will provide office space and training for a select group of new attorneys who want to build their own practices. During their 18-month participation in the incubator, these attorneys agree to represent low- and modest-income clients while receiving mentorship and training in how to run a law office with a focus on technology.


Get Involved

We are working with law schools, local bars, legal aid groups, and other organizations to optimize the benefit provided by the TOJI program.
