STL Public Interest Law Foundation (STL-PILF) was formally established on January 9, 2014. STL-PILF will be a student-run organization dedicated to enabling STL students to work in unpaid internships in the public interest and to provide support to help them pursue careers in the public interest upon graduation.
Comprised of a community of STL students, alumni, faculty, and friends devoted to public interest law, STL-PILF promotes its goals by fundraising and sponsoring public interest and community service events to educate students about the rewarding career possibilities in public interest law.
Currently, STL-PILF’s fundraising efforts directly support two programs, Summer Internship Grants and a Loan Forgiveness Program. The Summer Internship Grants is for law students with a demonstrated commitment to public interest who work in unpaid, full-time summer positions at national or international public interest agencies, organizations, and firms. For the students who are further pursuing a career in public interest law after graduation, the Loan Forgiveness Program Loan program will provide them with some financial support.
The funding of STL-PILF is raised through programs like STL-PILF’s Annual Auction as well as year-round contributions by members of the STL and greater community.
