PILF works with the law school to guarantee summer funding to 1Ls and 2Ls working in unpaid government or public interest positions. The funding is awarded through the Dean's Summer Service Grant, which provides summer funding to 1L and 2L students who secure a qualifying public service position for the summer, including: local, state, or federal government; not-for-profit organizations or non-governmental organizations (including international); and summer judicial clerkships (for 2Ls only).
For more details, visit Duke Law Public Interest Summer Funding.
PILF also awards Bar Grants to help offset the cost of the bar exam for graduating law students who are immediately going to work in qualifying public interest or government jobs.
