$13,000 Raised for Summer 2018 Public Interest Law Grant
Huge kudos to Southwestern’s Public Interest Law Committee (PILC) for all their hard work this semester! PILC successfully raised over $13,000 this year for the Public Interest Law Fund!
This year, in addition to raising money for the fund through events such as their annual Live Auction and Party Book, PILC also focused their fundraising efforts on increasing awareness and assisting the Los Angeles homeless population. Partnered with Homeless Health Care Los Angeles, they held two very successful drives to provide care packages to those in need.
The money raised by PILC will be awarded to Southwestern students through the Summer 2018 Public Interest Law Grant. This Public Interest Law Grant gives students the opportunity to participate in public interest organizations without the financial burden of acquiring more educational loans.
