PILF Auction Celebrates 25 Years
The 25th anniversay of the BC Law Public Interest Law Foundation (PILF) auction drew a large crowd to Gasson Hall on Boston College’s Chestnut Hill campus on March 14. The auction honored Kevin Curtin '88, Senior Appellate Counsel, Middlex District Attorney's Office, and raised money to provide summer stipends to BC Law students working in unpaid, public interest positions.
Auction items this year included gift cards, Red Sox tickets, candlepin bowling for 24 friends, wine tasting, a weekend in Provincetown at a private cottage, a faculty parking pass, dinners, tennis or golf with faculty, a $1750 Barbri voucher, and dinner for four at Dean Rougeau’s house, among many others.
PILF is a student organization dedicated to providing public interest law opportunities to students at Boston College Law School. These opportunities including funding student projects that work to help the needy, sponsoring speakers' series throughout the year, and providing students with summer stipends so that they can afford to work at legal services centers and public interest law jobs after their first and second law school years. In addition, PILF works with faculty and administration to encourage the addition of public interest law classes at Boston College Law School, provide loan forgiveness funds to graduating law students who are committed to practicing public interest law, and ensure that the law school continues its commitment to public interest law.
