The 30th annual Boston College Law School Public Interest Law Foundation (PILF) Auction will take place on Thursday, March 22, from 6:30–9:30 p.m. at the downtown offices of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius (13th Floor, 1 Federal Street, Boston).
In honor of the 30th anniversary, the evening will celebrate the many BC Law alumni (including a number of past PILF stipend recipients) who continue to serve the greater good through careers in the public sector and a strong commitment to pro bono and volunteer work.
Proceeds from the auction, a time-honored tradition at BC Law, help fund students’ unpaid summer legal internships with government, legal aid, and non-profit legal entities who share the common goal of protecting individual rights, promoting justice, and furthering the public good. Last summer, PILF funded 42 students who collectively performed over 14,700 hours of legal work. This year there were a record number of 213 initial applicants for the stipend process.
“We extend our deep gratitude to Morgan Lewis for again providing us with their beautiful space and helping make this evening possible,” said PILF President Lauren Koster. “I offer a personal thank you to the PILF board members who have worked tirelessly over countless months to put on this event and conduct our summer stipend application process. This auction’s perennial success is also due to the fantastic items and experiences donated by faculty, staff, alumni, students and their families, and local businesses. Thank you to our many supporters for their incredible generosity.”
This year’s PILF Auction items include a one-week cabin stay at Lake Tahoe, two-night stay in cabin at West Dover, VT, tickets to a Red Sox-Yankees game and a one-night stay at the W Hotel in Boston, among others.
A ticket to the auction for current Students is $21, and non students is $32. Parking is available onsite for $10 after 5:00 p.m.
