About the Auction

PILP is a student-run organization at Lewis & Clark Law School that encourages and supports budding attorneys pursuing careers in public interest law. The PILP Auction is the group’s largest fundraiser, bringing together the Portland community to raise funds to continue the Summer Award and Loan Repayment Assistance Programs. 

Through the Summer Award Program, PILP supports students doing invaluable work at public interest organizations in Oregon and across the country by providing awards to cover their living expenses. Since its inception, PILP summer stipends have helped over 275 students finance more than 100,000 hours of public interest law work at no cost to their employers. This past year, PILP granted 12 summer stipends to students working at public interest organizations. The Loan Repayment Assistance Program allows alumni to work for human rights organizations, Native American tribes, disability rights groups, conservation nonprofits, and other public interest organizations without some of the heavy burden of student loans.
