FOR A 

REPRESENTATIVE

FIRST

AMENDMENT

The Initiative for a Representative First Amendment (IfRFA) provides financial support and career opportunities for law students from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in First Amendment law. We help law students build expertise, make connections with clinics, and see themselves as part of a broad web of practitioners dedicated to justice and free expression.
