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.
