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 educate students about opportunities to practice public interest law, to reinforce their commitment to public interest law, and to cultivate relationships with public interest law practitioners; and
  2. To financially support students and attorneys in their public interest legal work through summer stipends and the Loan Repayment Assistance Program.
