UConn Public Interest Law Group A Project of Ignite Law 2017

UConn Law PILG

The Public Interest Law Group (PILG) is a student organization developed to encourage students to perform work in the public interest field both in school and in their professional careers. We have three primary focuses. First, PILG sponsors speakers and debates on campus regarding various public interest related topics to both excite students' academic minds and provide them with an image of how they can build a career out of working in the public interest. Second, the organization affords students the opportunity to serve the Greater Hartford community and gain valuable legal experience. PILG, in connection with outside organizations, helps to arrange pro bono and service opportunities for students to work on real cases and projects. Last, but certainly not least, PILG manages a Fellowship Program that provides grants to students who perform unpaid internships in the public interest.

We are raising money for Ignite Law 2017 so that we can support the general activities and operations in our club. We hope that with funds raised we can make the 25th annual PILG Auction a great success! If we do not reach our goal, or we raise more money then we need, money will still support our activities and events.

We are no longer accepting donations on this campaign, but there are other ways for you to support us today!
