Public Interest Law Project

We keep the doors to public interest work open for all, not just those who can afford to work for free.

Founded in 1990 to help fill the justice gap , PILP has two primary goals:

  1. To provide students with summer public interest stipends; and
  2. To provide support to our Loan Repayment Assistance Program.

Our annual auctions and other fundraising allow PILP to pursue its goals. 

The 2015 Auctions were a great success!

The 2015 on-campus and off-campus auctions were a great success, thank you for helping PILP raise money for a new set of stipend recipients.

We will have a list of our 2-15 stipend recipients and the organizations they are serving in the near future.
