Public Interest Project


The Public Interest Project is a student-run organization formed in 1984. Our mission is to support students who want to incorporate public interest and pro bono work into their legal careers. We provide grants to students who accept unpaid summer positions with non-profit, public interest or government organizations. Our goal is to foster a commitment to pro bono work and community service in all our grant recipients, whether they chose to pursue a public interest career or to work in the private sector. PIP raises grant money through the programs such as the Auction Gala, Cupcake Wars, Salary for a Day, the Beantown Shootout and through donations from alumni and law firms. In 2011, PIP provided summer grants to 78 first and second-year law students. Check out our website for more information:
