About the Auction

The PILP Auction raises funds to allow students to work in public interest law. In 2021, PILP was able to provide awards to ten students working at a variety of local organizations.

Public interest law is the practice of law pursued on behalf of both individuals and causes that are not typically served by the for-profit-bar. Public interest lawyers serve the public by working for civil and criminal legal services organizations, nonprofit organizations, government agencies, lobbying for the advancement of rights, and more. Public interest work is not confined to any one political ideology; it is work undertaken to advance concepts of justice, fairness, and protection of the public, rather than for purposes of commercial or personal gain. Public interest lawyers seek access to justice for everyone, regardless of their background or income.
