 History of the Goldmark Equal Access to Justice Internship

[su_pullquote align=”right”]“Chuck believed that it is the responsibility of each of us, in our own way to try to improve some aspect of our society beyond ourselves. To leave our society just a little bit better than when we found it when we arrived here. He believed that, as a lawyer, he could accomplish this. Chuck practiced what he believed.”
-Kevin F. Kelly, LFW Board President, 1997[/su_pullquote]

The Legal Foundation of Washington’s Board of Trustees created the Goldmark Internships in 1992 with a $50,000 gift from the Charles and Annie Goldmark Family Foundation. The Internship honors second LFW president, Charles A. Goldmark, a revered advocate for equal access to the justice system. The internship was created as a tribute to Chuck and to encourage young lawyers to emulate his ardent commitment to provide civil legal aid to under-served populations.

Charles Goldmark played a pivotal role in the creation of Washington State’s IOLTA program and is remembered through two LFW programs: the Charles A. Goldmark Distinguished Service Award and Luncheon and the Goldmark Equal Justice Internship Program. Since 1993, Goldmark Interns have worked to provide equal access to justice across Washington State.
