PILF Spring Event & Auction
Friday, February 12, 2016
Campion Ballroom, Seattle University
The Public Interest Law Foundation (PILF) works to increase awareness of the rewards, challenges, opportunities, and needs in public interest law. Over the past two decades, PILF has created and supported a number of programs that enable students to explore and engage in public interest careers, such as the law school’s Loan Repayment Assistance Program, job shadowing and networking events, and PILF’s Public Interest Summer Grant Program.
The Spring Event & Auction is PILF’s signature event. This is a celebration and fundraiser for the Summer Grant Program, which provides funding to Seattle University School of Law students who seek to work in summer jobs at nonprofit or public agencies that offer little to no pay. Engaging in activities such as these increases the likelihood that students will pursue social justice endeavors, as shown by the many grantees who have gone onto careers in public interest as public defenders, legal aid attorneys, and nonprofit leaders.
Tickets for the 2016 Spring Event & Auction, featuring keynote speaker Senator Cyrus Habib, are now on sale! Please select an option from the left to purchase tickets, make a cash or item donation to PILF, or view information about past Summer Grant recipients.
