Summer Internships and Funding

Each year, the Public Interest Law Foundation (PILF) holds an auction to raise money to fund students who take summer employment in the public sector. The student-run auction has become a main event at the law school, and is widely supported. Thanks to PILF’s successful fundraising efforts, seven students received grants for summer 2014 unpaid public interest/public service jobs. Students and their placements are:

The PSJD (formerly PSLawNet) website (http://www.psjd.org/) provides information on other funding sources. One such source is the Charles H. Revson Law Student Public Interest Fellowship Program, which awards summer grants to students attending law school in New York and New Jersey. Many public interest organizations have their own funds for summer internship positions, and administer a competitive application process of their own. The Eric Neisser Public Interest Program is available to assist students looking for those opportunities.
