PILSA Silent Auction
Announcing the second annual PILSA Silent Auction during Law Alumni Weekend April 11-13, 2014! Help PILSA raise $50,000 for summer internships!
What is PILSA? The Public Interest Law Students Association is a student organization dedicated to helping fellow students interested in pursuing careers in public service and public interest law. PILSA’s goal is to promote a commitment to community service and pro-bono work.
Why $50,000? Last year PILSA awarded $8,000 to 5 students for summer internships, while turning away countless other deserving students. $50,000 will provide 20 grants of $2,500 each.
What will the proceeds fund? All proceeds from the auction will provide grants for summer internships for first and second year law students.
How can you help?
- Donate items to auction, such as a weekend at your vacation home, tickets to a basketball/football/baseball game, a piece of artwork, a service, or anything else.
- If you do not feel like you have something appropriate for the auction, but still want to participate in this effort, make a contribution online at www.law.wlu.edu/waystogive or call 540.458.8587.
Why? Your participation in this auction not only gives students the opportunity to pursue work in public service but also helps to give back to the greater community.
Which employers qualify for PILSA funding? Legal aid offices, public interest organizations, social service agencies, non-profit organizations, governmental agencies (including work for a judge, public defender or prosecutor) and tribal entities. Qualifying work may take place outside of the United States and need not necessarily involve direct client services.
