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.

Students founded PILP in 1990 to help fill the gap between those who need attorneys and this who can afford attorneys by encourage students to pursue public interest careers. We have 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 auction and other fundraising allow PILP to pursue its goals. Stipends have helped students work on issues including children’s rights, environmental protection, domestic violence, criminal law, and civil rights.
