February 1: Support Students’ Commitment to Public Service!  Donate to PILA


Whether you can make to this year’s PILA Auction on Saturday, February 1 or not, now’s a great time to make a special donation to ensure the sustainability of its summer grant program for law students working in public service!

When you give this year, remember two things:  (1) this year, your gift will have “triple effect” because of the Dean’s match and will support a permanent—rather than a single year—grant (with the dean’s match, the faculty/staff has already funded three grants for this summer!); (2) because of rising tuitions costs, a difficult legal job market, and dwindling budgets for legal aid and public defense, there has never been a time of greater need.
