Come to the Public Interest Law Foundation's (PILF) introductory meeting to learn more about PILF, becoming eligible for summer funding, and ways to volunteer with our organization. PILF represents the cooperative efforts of students encouraging and enabling fellow students at Duke Law to pursue summer internships in public interest and public service. Together, we volunteer our time raising money so we can award grants to classmates who have also volunteered and have accepted eligible positions. Please note, in order to participate with PILF this year, your attendance is required at either the Monday, September 9th meeting at 4:30pm or the Monday, September 16th meeting at 12:15pm. Pizza will be served. Please email Chris Girouard (email@example.com) or Rebecca Ryan (Rebecca.firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions.
